The American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) has released 12 resolutions to stay healthy in 2009. Standouts include reducing stress by focusing only on those things over which you have control, and checking with your physician before undergoing any complementary or alternative medicine (CAM) practices to avoid injury or negative drug-herbal supplement interactions.

  • Avoid smoking—the leading cause of preventable risk.
  • Achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.
  • Don’t drink and drive.
  • Exercise regularly at an appropriate level.
  • Consume alcohol only in moderation.
  • Get regular preventive healthcare and checkups.
  • Protect yourself against sexually transmitted diseases.
  • Check “alternative” practices with your doctor.
  • Use seatbelts on every trip.
  • Keep your teeth and gums in good condition.
  • Install and maintain a smoke detector in your home.
