The best way to live and stay healthy is to prevent health problems before they surface. Yet no matter how well you take care of yourself, the effects of heredity,the environment, and other factors mean you could still get sick. That’s where early detection comes in. By scheduling regular health screenings, you’re more likely to identify and treat a potential problem during its early stages. And early detection and early treatment mean you have the best chances for a complete recovery.
