Nutrition is how food affects the health of the body. The body has to function and remain healthy by taking in macronutrients and micronutrients. Failure to do so leads to ill-health and disease.

A healthy life style is increased or decreased by our level of wellness.
Healthy living also includes having the proper amount of physical activity. A person should have an average of 60 minutes of physical activity a day in order to lead a healthy and fit life. We should all strive to work towards getting off the couch and reducing screen-time to lead less sedentary lives. This, in fact, encourages weight loss. The Ministries of Education in both Canada and U.S.A should revise the health curriculum to emphasise more on healthy eating and healthy body image to empower youth about the importance of having a healthy lifestyle.
We should be able to safely say that we are doing the best we can to make sure that our bodies are guarded and protected with natural supplements to keep it healthy. Taking antioxidant supplements help you fight many diseases and free radicals naturally. They work positively to reduce the harmful onslaught of free radicals that constantly try to work their way into the system. Research on the subject by the medical fraternity indicates that these free radicals can cause very serious problems that are detrimental to health. By taking antioxidant supplements, you will be able to provide building blocks, with the oral enzymes that will counteract the harmful effects and stop them in their track.

In the end, it is recommended that education and awareness about health must be spread through all classes adequately, health care services should be more readily available in a better quality among lower socioeconomic classes, to promote and encourage a healthy lifestyle with more physical activities by providing many public facilities in the more deprived countries, and not to forget raising awareness about the importance of mental health and how stress or depression for example can lead to poorer overall
Lastly, I will talk about how EBM affected me in my own life. Evidence Based Medicine is considered to be a “symbolic authority in decision making” (Lambert, 2006). What this means is that it it focus on the best types of healthcare systems for individuals, through incorporating uniting the best clinical experiences, along with expertise with the beliefs and values of patients. It also primarily focuses on the process validating information that is considered to be useful, instead of the outcomes of the discoveries.
INTRODUCTION Nowadays more and more people are turning to social and behavioral sciences to take care of their health that is, to get used to good health lifestyle, for people to have health awareness, and give them support for healthy or unhealthy behavior.

Instead we should be advocating patients to practice healthy lifestyle and aware of any potential health risks in daily life. Prevention of diseases is of most importance, preventing infections by practicing basic hygiene can lower the burden to the entire health care system and prevent unnecessary expense of patients.
