Your health is one of the most important aspects of your life. It impacts your productivity, your ability to provide for your family, and your quality of life. Yet most women don't pay much attention to their health. Most women are so busy running after their kids and career that they don't have time to focus on their health.

Health is a topic that affects us all. But it’s a topic that can be difficult to navigate, which is why we’re here to help. We want to provide women with the knowledge they need to feel confident in their bodies, their minds, and their lives. Today, I'm sharing 10 random facts about health every woman should know.

1) Cancer

In 2012, almost 42% of new cases of breast cancer in American were attributed to obesity. The same is true for endometrial cancer and in 2012, about one out of every four cases of endometrial cancer were attributed to obesity. This means that for every woman diagnosed with endometrial cancer, about one will have been obese at some time during her life. So what are your chances? You may think that the risk of developing cancer is low and that if you do, it will probably resolve itself. But it’s not that simple. You’re more likely to develop a variety of cancers, including breast cancer, if you are obese. This is because the hormones released from your fat tissue and the cancer-causing cells found in your fat tissue make you more likely to develop precancerous lesions and cancer, even years before you develop actual disease. So, whatever your weight, start working on losing weight, now. Or if you already know that you are obese, start thinking about what you can do to make weight loss easier.

2) Ovary

The average woman doesn’t know where her ovaries are. For many, they lie so deep inside the abdomen that they are completely undetectable. Yet these little organs are one of the most important parts of a woman’s body. The hormones that they produce influence everything from your menstrual cycle to your moods. So, what are your chances? You may think that the risk of developing ovarian cancer is low and that if you do, it will probably resolve itself. But it’s not that simple. You’re more likely to develop ovarian cancer if you are a premenopausal woman. The reason is that in premenopausal women, the hormones that affect the ovaries are made by the adrenal glands. If you are a premenopausal woman and your adrenal glands are not producing enough hormones, you are at a higher risk for an irregular menstrual cycle, and you are more likely to develop both benign and cancerous tumors that form in your ovaries. So, get your adrenal glands functioning properly. Be sure to read about adrenal fatigue. And talk to your doctor about your adrenal glands and what they can do to improve your

3) Fatty Liver

The average woman doesn't know that a fatty liver is a serious health problem. If you have a fatty liver, your liver produces more fat than it should. Not only can this cause liver cancer, but it can also cause diabetes, strokes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. This is called nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. You might think that having a fatty liver is a small problem that doesn't impact your health or the health of your family and friends, but it’s not that simple. You have a much greater chance of developing this condition if you are a premenopausal woman. The reason is that hormones produced by your adrenal glands are responsible for your liver producing fat. If you are a premenopausal woman and your adrenal glands are not producing enough hormones, you are more likely to develop a fatty liver. So, get your adrenal glands functioning properly.

4) Smoking

The average woman doesn't know that smoking, even in small amounts, can actually change the cells in your body. Smoking is the most important preventable cause of lung cancer. If you are a smoker, you are at a higher risk for many types of cancer. This is why you should never start smoking. It is particularly dangerous for people who are pregnant, have asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, or other respiratory diseases. And you don’t have to be a smoker to be affected by the smoke of other smokers. If you are around the smoke of others, you are at a greater risk for lung cancer.

5) Sugar

The average woman doesn't know that a diet high in sugar can cause you to have more fat on your body. Sugar is a major source of calories. If you are eating too many calories, your body will store the extra calories as fat. This is known as a calorie surplus. When your body becomes too fat, it can cause problems in many different parts of your body, from your brain and blood vessels to your heart. If you are eating too much sugar, you are likely to consume more calories than you need and you are likely to put on fat. So, avoid sweets. And be sure to have your fruit intake in balance with your vegetable intake.

In conclusion, the average woman doesn’t know many things about her body or about how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. These five facts are just a few that I know. This type of ignorance can be extremely harmful to your health. So, take time to learn about your body. Ask questions. And make sure that you know your health. It is the only thing you have to live for. The choice is yours. Do you live with the knowledge that you are healthy? Or do you want to find out what it means to be in good health? It means living life in the most positive way. And that is a choice only you can make. So, good luck. And remember, no pill, no cream, no potion can do that for you. You have to take charge of your health and your destiny. I hope you find some of this information useful.
