World War II army General George Patton said “A pint of sweat saves a gallon of Blood”. Well General Patton – our generation today needs to give new meaning to that expression. It is amazing if we invest sweat in physical activity & clean lifestyle habits we can seriously save gallons of blood!
Please join me with Dr. Nakela Cook of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our blood is the very best window we have into the status of our health. We will be discussing LDl & HDl cholesterol, triglycerides, Non HDl, C Reactive Protein, fatty liver – and how ALL of these numbers are dramatically impacted by our daily lifestyle choices of nutrition, physical activity, smoking & alcohol. Our blood levels & blood pressure influence every organ system in our body. We so often make the mistake of going to our doctor, having blood work done, and only hearing the results once there is a problem where medication is required. The very best prescription is a healthy lifestyle – and our blood proves this to us. There is so much great information here, make sure you stay tuned for Game Plan at the end of the show we summarize all the great information – and make sure we implement into our lifestyles.
