with lack of movement and exercise reduces blood flow throughout the body which in turn reduces the
flow of antibodies that fight infections.

Poor Diet- Over dependence on processed and ready to eat meals, junk food and soda that are loaded with
preservatives, refined sugar, pesticides and chemicals reduces the bacteria fighting capacity of white blood
cells, damages and weaken the immune system.

Obesity- This the outcome of the above two causes, sedentary life style and poor food choices has turned
