What Ages You?
Many men ignore simple ways to keep their bodies strong and youthful. Here are the main culprits for aging:
- Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of men in the U.S., due largely to unhealthy habits (e.g., smoking and eating a diet high in saturated fat, sodium, and sugar).
- Cancer is # 2. Diet plays an important role in preventing cancer, as does avoiding common carcinogens, such as tobacco smoke.
- Chronic stress: It hinders your immune system response, making you more susceptible to infection and disease. It can also cause wrinkles and other visible signs of aging.
