Living healthily in midlife can double your chances of being healthy at 70 and beyond. Everyday habits and behaviours, e.g. eating too much unhealthy food, drinking more than is recommended, continuing to smoke and not being active, are responsible for around 40% of all deaths in England.
Our lifestyles can be more unhealthy than we think. Public Health England have launched the new One You campaign to help adults across the country avoid future disease caused by modern day life. Start the fight back to a healthier you. Take the One You quiz and see how you score.
Have you had an NHS Health Check yet? If you’re aged 40-74 you can get free personalised advice on keeping yourself healthy and active. This can help you prevent diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease and dementia. Find our more here.
