Some people find they keep getting sick, no matter what precautions they take. They might develop a cold that seems to last for weeks, or kick one illness just to pick up another a few days later. There are a lot of reasons some people get sick more than others. In some cases, it is due to lifestyle and environmental factors they can adjust, but, sometimes, there is a more serious underlying problem.


1. Diet

Most people know that eating right facilitates long term health. A good diet protects against heart disease, diabetes, and more. Eating a variety of healthful foods also delivers vitamins, minerals, and nutrients the body needs to support the immune system. Without a proper diet, your body is unprepared to fight off the germs that make you sick.
