Women issues and Prevention

Our health is a reflection of our choices – our lifestyle choices. Now everyone is more likely to talk about practices like smoking, consuming too much alcohol or red meat. But there are things that we do every day, that are slowly but steadily causing much damage to our health. These are not dangers that you will see coming from miles away, but ones that will crop up on you suddenly.

On International Women’s Day, let us look at the effects of some of these lifestyle practices that are a result of societal conventions of women always looking the best versions of themselves; we urge all women to put their health first by slowly habituating themselves out of these practices, to ensure that they lead longer and fuller lives.
