So many diseases can be prevented if you assess your risk factors and consult your medical professional early on. Visit the Washington University School of Medicine’s Siteman Cancer Center website (Direct Link: https://siteman.wustl.edu/prevention/ydr/?ScreenControl=YDRGeneral&ScreenName=YDRHome.htm) to assess your risk of the following diseases:

    • Cancer – then for causes and prevention, compare and contrast what you learned with an article from Mercola.com
    • Diabetes – then for causes, treatment and prevention, compare and contrast with Dr. Fung
    • Heart Disease – then for causes, treatment and prevention, compare and contrast with Mercola.com, e.g., https://www.mercola.com/article/heart_disease/index.aspx
    • Osteoporosis – then for causes, treatment and prevention, compare and contrast with Mercola.com
    • Stroke – then for causes, treatment and prevention, compare and contrast with Mercola.com

    There are many interacting factors for supporting overall good health and heart health. By exploring the Mercola website for bone health and stroke prevention you will have some basic and relevant information. You may find other sites in your research.
