Doctor Oz did a segment on secret signs your body is telling you, because sometimes your body could be telling you very helpful clues well before you develop a disease. This Dr. Oz show was a must see (or at least a must read), so send this article to all of your friends and family! Dr. Kimberly Manning from Emory School of Medication also joined Dr. Oz to help us learn about the secret signs our bodies are telling us.
Everyone can tell when they feel tired or are starting to get a cold, but just like our body gives us hints about these topics, our body gives us signs of much more serious diseases too. Here are 4 secret body signals to keep our eyes on…
1. Your Height
A study done by the National Academy of Sciences showed that if you are under 5’2″ in height, you have a better chance of living to be 100 years old. The reason scientists think short people live longer is that they think the gene that determines a person’s height seems to be related to the gene that helps our body to recover from oxidative stress, which damages our cells through radiation every day due to the environment, our activities and our diet. So what if we aren’t 5’2″ or shorter, how can we prolong our life?
