Health Mistakes People Make After Age 50!

1. Social isolation

Men are more socially isolated. Just 48% of older men living alone were content with their number of friends, according to "12 Hard Truths About Retirement."

2. Eating salty foods

Salt is the source of about 90% of the sodium we eat. Also, 90 percent of Americans ages 2 and up eat too much sodium.

3. Delaying colonoscopy

Precancerous polyps cause most colorectal cancers. Screening may identify the illness in its early, curable stages.

4. Skipping a daily aspirin

The USPSTF recommends daily aspirin treatment for those 50 to 59 with a 10% or higher 10-year risk of heart attack or stroke.

5. Avoiding the weight room

Osteoporosis risk rises with age. 10 million individuals have osteoporosis, and 44 million more have inadequate bone density.

6. Drinking too little water

Elderly people carry less water. They also use more dehydrating drugs. Their thirst is less severe, so they neglect to drink.
