Ways on how to die young

Oh yes, you read it right. I read this one article last week and found it very interesting since most article usually tackles about how to care for our health, how to live long. But not this one this deals on how to die young hahahaha.

1. Eat what you want. You are what you eat. Since your concern is to die younger, eat anything, especially those cholesterol laden foods such as cheese, egg yolks, beef, pork, chicken and shrimp. Cholesterol is not present in plant based food sources unless it has been added during the food's preparation.

Excess cholesterol settles along arterial walls and that excess can clog arteries and restrict blood flow leading to angina pain, heart attack or stroke. Cholesterol is also a leading cause of gallstones.

2. Drink like there's no tomorrow. Alcohol drinking is a big part of people merry making activities. Beer is an essential part of parties. Even when there is no special occasions, many people hang together in the streets or their houses drinking gin and tonic, which is considerably cheaper alcoholic drink.

Among physical health effects associated with alcohol consumption include cirrhosis of the liver, pancreatitis, epilepsy, polyneuropathy, alcoholic dementia, heart disease, increased chance of cancer, nutritional deficiencies, sexual dysfunction, and even death.

3. Drive like crazy. "If you drive, don't drink. If you drink, don't drive" It is a known fact that driving while intoxicated or drunk is dangerous. In the United States, alcohol us estimated to play a role in 39 percent of vehicle related deaths and to cost $51 billion annually.

4. Puff a smoke every now and then. A custom loathsome to the eye, hateful to the nose, harmful to the brain, dangerous to the lungs. Today there is 100 percent proof that smoking is indeed harmful.

Smoking causes lung cancer, emphysema, heart attacks, osteoporosis, peptic ulcer and reproductive problems like impotence. Whenever smoke passes, it spreads its deadly trademark: starting from the mouth where it causes oral cancer, then cancer of the vocal cords, then cancer of the esophagus and finally lung cancer.

5. Disregard regular medical checkup. There are several medical check ups that a person should undergo to maintain well being. For medical history, vital statistics are height, weight, blood pressure, heart rate, breathing rate. Routine blood and urine test are done to check things like cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Heart examination is conducted to check heart rate while breathing test is carried out to check lung capacity which can be affected by smoking, asthma or other conditions.

Two test that men under the age of 40 should undergo are prostate examination and testicular examination.

For women, the two most often recommended test are breast cancer screening and pap smear.

6. Stop thinking about exercise. "Those who think they have no time for bodily exercise will sooner or later found time for illness," said Edward Stanley. A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine reported that 30 minutes of walking daily brings as much risk reduction for heart attacks as a high intensity exercise program.

There are more benefits you can get from exercise. It can prevent you staying away from chronic illnesses such as diabetes and even some cancers. It does stabilize your blood pressure and cholesterol level. Also exercise can excrete the toxic waste from your body through sweating.

7. Greet stress with gladness. If you've been sick lately, suspect stress. Some doctors say that as many as nine of ten visits to the doctor may be related to stress. That includes everything from allergies and asthma to herpes and heart disease.

Now if that little bit of news isn't stressing enough, there are also those traffic jams and long lines, jerky bosses and inept workers, too much to do and too little time to do it. And don;t forget unemployment, pollution, crime and separation.

Stress is a biological term which refers to the consequences of the failure of a person to respond appropriately to emotional or physical threats, whether actual or imagined. Maybe sounds a little overdramatic, but the reality is that excessive, untreated stress can actually kill you.

Now if you want to live longer, do exactly the opposite.
