One of the most important ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle in addition to remaining physically active and eating right is to get regular preventive screenings. For more information about what types of screenings are important for your particular health maintenance, see your doctor and ask questions. It just might save your life. The American Cancer Society recommends these screening guidelines for most adults and the National Cancer Institute provides information on Screening and Testing to Detect Cancer.
