  3. 3. HEALTH AND NUTRITION 101 (sample pages) Page | 3 Four Important Health Facts That Will Change Your LifeNutritionGrowing up we were always taught to eat our fruits and vegetables. Our parents, relatives, siblings,teachers, ministers and even strangers all encouraged a healthy diet. And with good cause.Without proper nutrition from fruits, vegetables and grains our bodies cannot and will not function,inevitably shortening our lives. Fruits and vegetables serve a dual purpose. They provide nutrientsto strengthen us and they provide roughage to cleanse our bodies. Even if you cannot meet therecommended amounts, it is important to consume some portion of fruits and vegetables daily.Another crucial element to superior health is water. To identify the correct amount of water youshould drink daily, divide your body weigh by two. That number represents the number of ouncesyou need to sustain yourself.CirculationBlood circulation is a vital part of our health.
