To start, pick a physical activity that you like to do and do it!

-Eliminate high-risk activities. Wear your seat belt, and do things that can reduce the cost of health care.

-There needs to be a cultural transformation. Community leaders such as rabbis, priests, teachers, and principals need to make a long-term commitment to health-literacy, and then spread the word. Knowledge about health risks is easily accessible, so we all need to take on the role of a leader if we can.

-The greatest predictor of health status in a community is socioeconomic status. People need access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and it has got to be safe to go outside.

-Work within your community to provide opportunity. Write to your assemblymen and demand a supermarket that provides fresh fruits and vegetables.
