Have you ever heard the old proverb, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”?
This is a famous saying because it’s easier to stop something from happening in the first place than to repair the damage after it has happened. This is definitely true for disease prevention.
We know through countless research papers, observational studies, and clinical data that chronic disease is influenced by our habits. Our genetics, diet, exercise, sleep, stress, social connections, and toxic exposures all impact our health and our chances of aging well without developing disease.
