By the time we reach our 40s and 50s many of us will have dramatically increased our risk of diseases like diabetes, cancer, heart disease and stroke. It is not just our age and genes that affects our health it is our lifestyles too. In fact 70 % of disease is related to the way we live our lives.
Whether we are eating the wrong foods too much or too often. Drinking more than we should. Continuing to smoke despite what we know, or that we are just not active enough. All these small things can add up to have a huge influence on our health.
The good news is that it is never too late to make a difference. We know that changes to the way we live, no matter how old we are, can dramatically reduce our risks, as well as helping us to get more out of life.
We know it isn’t easy. It is difficult to change unhealthy habits but we know you can do it! One you is an NHS initiative to provide you with support to review your lifestyle and improve your health and wellbeing.
