The goal of this course is to help you take charge of your health by recognizing how diet, exercise and cholesterol factors influence good health. Discuss age, sex and hereditary factors. Also consider lifestyle choices, such as patterns of smoking, physical inactivity, diet, and social support. See how hereditary factors can be expressed or suppressed through a person's lifestyle, and how behaviour, health care access and availability, genetics and environment can influence healthy aging.
