The bacteria released from the bad gums may be absorbed in the blood. So, kekeep the teeth and the teeth gaps clean by brushing properly. The odds of heart disease will get reduced.

Shortage of milk products intake

It was noted that those who failed to take sufficient quantity of milk food, wren affected with chance getting type 2 diabetes as compared with those who took sufficient milk products.

It is not wise to reduce intake of milk products under the pretext of reducing calories or fat.

Non-exposure to sunlight

Most of us do not like standing under the sun. Nobody recommends it as well. But sunlight is the main source of vitamin D, a very important element in g good health. Sufficient quantity of vitamin D will be produced only with the right quantum of exposure to sunlight.

Doctors recommend exposure to sunlight for 5 to 30 minutes between 10 AM & 3 PM.

Avoiding beans

Black beans and kidney are rich in protein. They do not contain harmful fat. They also contain soluble fiber which reduces the cholesterol level. These are available in oats and barley as well. They can reduce the cholesterol in blood vessels.

Irregular sleeping habits

Do you keep awake till late in the night? Do you get up very early in the morning? Do you keep turning & tossing in the bed while trying to sleep? Do you feel shortage of sleep?

This certainly reduces the chances of heart diseases. So, if you do not sleep soundly well at east for minimum period of 6 to 8 hours, consult the doctors and have the checks. This will explain the reasons for sleep shortage.

Failure to walk

If you have the habit of driving a car to cover for even short distances, you harm your heart! So, stop your vehicle at a distance when you visit shops, banks, or personal work and walk to the place.
