The term ‘kicking the bucket’ is fairly well known, and what it implies. It was popularized by two men in a 2007 movie. They had terminal illnesses, and decided to actualize their dreams before kicking the bucket. They came up with a ‘bucket list’ of stuff they wanted to do before they died.
You can borrow a leaf from the two gentlemen and come up with a bucket list for your own health. This would translate into optimal health for most of your days. You won’t then need to wait until you are in the process of dying to really live your life.
You can live it here and now, by consciously taking simple steps to keep ahead with your health.
The concept of over-diagnosis may be foreign to most patients, and even doctors too. Over-diagnosis refers to making a diagnosis that is ultimately not necessary, because the patient would never have suffered any symptoms or death from the said diagnosis.
Over-diagnosis usually occurs when you get screened for a disease, such as cancer, in an effort to detect it at an early stage when it may be more amenable to treatment and cure.
