10 Commandments for Good health
1. Stop using all tobacco and drugs.
Stop using tobacco and drugs? Are you kidding? That's impossible--I don't smoke or use drugs now. A substitute step for those not practicing self-destruction: Commit to do what it takes to experience at least 23 good laughs each day, more if possible.
2. Limit alcohol to no more than 10 drinks per week.
Ten alcoholic drinks a week are way too much! I rarely drink alcohol. It's fattening, expensive and makes you stupid. A substitute step: Drink at least eight 10-ounce glasses of water a day.
3. Start exercising.
Start exercising? Where do you think I've been? On the moon? As an adult contemplating the rigors of middle age, I'd have to be a mental case not to be exercising already. I'll just keep working out. A substitute step: Increase regular exercise to go beyond the minimums for disease avoidance.
4. Use less salt and eat less fat-especially animal fat.
Depends on how much salt and fat I use now. If I thought I might be using too much, I'd arrange for a dietary analysis and find out. A substitute step: Don't worry about salt, saturated fat, sugar and the rest. Focus instead on foods consistent with guidelines set out by varied government and private groups (i.e., Center for Science in the Public Interest).
5. Eat more fresh vegetables.
Depends on how much I'm eating now. A substitute step: Put less energy into food and more on adding meaning and excitement to life. Nurture your passions. If you died tomorrow, would you regret not eating more carrots?
6. Avoid obesity
Yes. I'll also avoid exposure to radiation, hungry reptiles and bubonic plague. A substitute step: Commit to achieving and maintaining a fit body through lifelong exercise and sound eating habits.
7. Take proper diet supplements and calcium, antioxidant vitamins C, E and A.
idea. All the evidence seems to support the need for this modest degree of dietary insurance, particularly against cancer risks. A substitute step? Nah
8. Fasten your seat belt.
If you think I need to be told to fasten my seat belt, you must think I'm hopeless. A substitute step: Besides fastening the seat belt, buy a car equipped with an air bag, arrange to do less motoring and when driving, do so defensively, with great care.
9. Avoid exposure to the sun.
I think I'll just minimize sun exposure at midday. For me, being outdoors is such a crucial part of being really alive. A substitute step: Use powerful sunscreens, never sunbathe or use those ridiculous tanning booths, avoid peak exposure periods and cover up as much as practical.
10. Get regular medical examinations.
Regular medical check up specially after 35-40 will prevent many diseases and help keeping under control .Suitable action medicine, exercise etc can keep the health and wealth in good condition for many years to come.
