In this weeks video health tip, Dr. Samir Hajariwala, director of Crossroads Chiropractic, takes a look at 5 bad habits that are wreaking havoc with your health.
We all have them, but some can be worse for you than others.
Here is how 5 bad habits can destroy your health.
1. Not Enough Sleep
If you are not getting the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep a night you may be setting yourself up for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and depression.
2. Electronic Gadget Use Before Bed
“Blue light” is given off by electronic gadgets like phones, computers, and TVs. Studies now show too much of any kind of night-time light might be linked to cancer (especially breast and prostate), diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.
3. Alcohol Consumption
Alcohol in any quantity is linked to kidney disease, liver disease, digestive issues, heart problems, bone damage, and even some cancers.
4. Consume Too Much Food
Consuming too much food, even if it’s healthy, causes weight gain leading to heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and raising your chances of certain kinds of cancer.
5. Eat Junk Food
Soda, candy, and pastries have lots of calories, little nutrition, and too much sugar that gets into your blood too quickly. Junk food is linked to serious health problems like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
Take advantage of good habits instead, like exercise, a healthy diet, a good night’s sleep and regular Chiropractic care.
