5. I'm not at-risk so I won't get one
My sister better go get hers, though. She had ulcerative colitis, a subsequent colectomy and is vulnerable to all of that kind of stuff.

I've been lucky the last 4 years or so, since I started taking vitamins and eating a healthier diet. 400 mg daily of folic acid, whether in vitamins or in eating lots of spinach or other dark green veggies, will go a long way in preventing some illnesses.

I haven't had a cold or flu that settled in my chest for years, and nothing that lasted more than a day. Not only did I start taking vitamins and eating healthy, I also decided I wasn't going to get a cold. My church teaches that it is important to deny the power of illness over you. Unfortunately, some people interpret that to mean we believe that if you get sick, it's your fault.
