Now is the best time to have your eyes tested. Routine eye exams can uncover major health concerns such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer. It's better to receive an early diagnosis and maintain your eye health unless you want to spend the rest of your life wearing glasses.
8. Examine your Teeth.

Oral hygiene is one of the most overlooked aspects of human health. Our teeth and gums begin to act up as we get older. Tooth decay, poor breath, discoloured teeth, and gum diseases begin to take hold. If not treated promptly, your dentist may be forced to remove these teeth.
If you're in your 20s or 30s, regardless of whether you're a man or a woman, make it a point to have your body medically evaluated on a frequent basis. Eat healthy, exercise often, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. It's never too late to start.
