To a Healthier Life

Yes, you’ve heard that drinking red wine and tea is good for you, but do you know why? Men’s Health put together a list of the 12 things you can do to live a healthier life with a short explainer on why it is helpful for you.
 
For example:
 

  • Drink hot tea to decrease your cancer risk by 15%. Pu-erh tea is the least damaging to your body.
  • Aim for 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night, because too much or too little can kill you.
  • Clean out the lint trap in your dryer to avoid becoming a dryer-fire victim.
  • Using household spray cleaners can increase your chance of getting asthma by 76%
  • Being sedentary can kick-start the genes in your body that are responsible for heart disease and diabetes, so get moving.

 
Whew. Who knew changing such little things could have such a big impact on your health? [Men’s Health]
