Living longer

Guest Blog by Dr Raj Khapra

Thanks to the NHS and modern medicine we all are living longer. There are consequences for individuals, families NHS and social services.

Ageing comes with increased risk of heart attack, stroke osteoporosis and dementia on one hand, and has led to changes in retirement age on the other.

Health is a  result of interplay of genes, environment and lifestyle. As individuals, we can do very little to change the impact of genes and environment on our health.

Lifestyle is the only factor we have in our hands to have a healthy and happy retired long life.

It’s our body, our health and our suffering. Stop smoking, drink in moderation, eat healthy and do regular exercise.

Don’t pay the price twice, now to the vendor and later with poor health and its consequences.

Remember it is never too late!
