Health Professional's Perspective

The opinions come from every side. From your friends and family, from coworkers and Facebook, from your neighbors and people on TV. Everywhere you look, someone is telling you how they think you can live a healthier life. In a lot of ways, this is great! We all care about being healthy and sharing information to help each other is awesome! But it can also be confusing because the advice doesn’t always match up! And then you have to wonder, which side do health experts come down on? What do they think is important for healthy living and what do they think you can leave by the wayside? Well, wonder no more, because we asked health experts those exact questions! And their essay-style answers form our Health Professional’s Perspective Series! Check out their takes on healthy living by browsing below.
