Health and Nutrition

The food we eat and how much we move both have a great impact on our overall health. A healthy diet helps fuel and maintain a healthy body and protect against various illnesses, disorders, and chronic disease, such as heart disease, stroke, dementia, type 2 diabetes, bone loss, cancer, and anemia. A nutritious diet can also help reduce high blood pressure, lower cholesterol, manage arthritis, and manage diabetes. Physical activity strengthens bones and muscles, improves cardiovascular health, protects against many health conditions, increases energy, controls weight, and improves mental health and mood.
