What diseases am I likely to get and when do you start getting them?

I'm in my 20's, and am trying to exercise almost every day to ward off any disease that I may get upon entering my 30's-40's. I was wondering what diseases are you most likely to get and when do you start getting them?

Always do some sort of cardio to keep your heart healthy.

I'm 22 and I'm trying to do the same thing, I'm still very young but I plan on maintaining my health and I won't be going down(aging) without a damn fight.

Don't eat processed junk on a regular basis. Read labels and only buy things without all the scientific words on the label, especially high fructose corn syrup which is in everything.

Learn to cook. Eat mostly veggies, fruit, good protein, nuts, beans and good fats. Drink a lot of water

Work towards eating 80% good. You don't want to be miserable obsessing about diet but with all the frankenfoods that are so available it does take some work eat well.

Splurge and enjoy yourself at times so you don't feel deprived.

Find a functional medical doctor or integrative doctor to run basic tests once a year to see if you need improvement in areas. Regular MDs are not trained to prevent future disease or to give nutritional advice.

Who the hell is starting these false and uncommitted threads? Is traffic really so bad that someone just sits there and cranks inanity out, to promote the appearance of engagement?

You are going to do all you can to avoid diseases, OP, and you will die in a traffic accident next year.
