Family Health Tree Technology at Your Fingertips
Knowing your family history might be one of the strongest influences on understanding your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes. According to the Center for Disease Control, a study conducted showed that 96 percent of Americans believed that knowing their family history is important, but only one third have actually gathered their family history.
Your family health history can be helpful in determining which tests and screenings are best for you. Screenings are important, because the earlier a disease is caught the earlier it can be treated. Long Beach Medical Center offers various comprehensive health screenings throughout the year including cancer detection for men and women and heart and vascular screenings among others.
Family history also is helpful in determining the kind of lifestyle and behaviors you should adopt. By increasing healthy behaviors such as a nutritious diet and exercise and decreasing unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, you can delay or in some cases prevent disease.
