Big Benefits From Small Tips

The key to longevity--Eat nuts!

People who ate a handful of nuts DAILY were
about 20% less likely to die from any cause, 
especially heart disease and cancer, over a 
30-year period than non-nut eaters.

Sitting is the new smoking!

Sitting too long can increase risk of 
high blood pressure, obesity and heart disease, 
even if you hit the gym after work.
Moving even a little bit- standing up for a minute
while talking on the phone, for example-adds up.
Don't just sit there for long periods of time.

Watching your weight saves you money!

Staying trim could help save some dough, at least when it comes to health-care costs.  A study from the journal Obesity found that health care costs were lowest for people with a body mass index of 19, which falls into the lower range of a healthy BMI.  The heavier people got, though, the more those costs rose.
