immunesystemLack of exercise: Sitting at your desk all day can not only make you feel sluggish, it can leave your immune system sluggish, too.

Being overweight: Carrying extra weight puts you at risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

Eating foods high in sugar and fat: Consuming too much sugar suppresses immune system cells responsible for attacking bacteria.

Experiencing constant stress: Everyone has some stress in their lives. And short-term stress may actually boost the immune system – the body produces more cortisol to make ”fight or flight” possible.
