Looking after your health from a young age can have a massive effect on your wellbeing as you get older. If you lead an unhealthy lifestyle in your teens, drink too much, smoke, eat unhealthy meals all the time then you may get away with it but as you get older you may develop problems that are very had to rectify.
Smoking is a number one cause of cancer in the UK and despite this fact, still many of us do it. It may be that when you are younger you do not really consider the health risks or think that it will never happen to you but the fact is that 1 in 3 of us on average do develop some sort of cancer so surely we should try and illuminate this as much as possible.
Going to the doctors for a health MOT is a great way to find out how you are and if there are any areas of your lifestyle that you need to consider changing in order to improve your health.
