2. When you lose, don't lose the lesson. 
3. Follow the three Rs: 1. Respect for self 2. Respect for others 3. Responsibility for all your actions. 
4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

7. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
8. Spend some time alone every day.
9. Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.
10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
11. Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time.
12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

1949 Camel Cigarettes T.V. Commercial. (More Doctors Smoke Camels...)

Today we know smoking is a major risk factor in the development of cardiovascular disease which is the number one cause of death worldwide, and with obesity and diabetes on the rise it doesn't appear that that trend is likely to change anytime soon. 

The good news is that you may be able to prevent cardiovascular disease by adopting a heart-healthy lifestyle. Here's how!

Food for thought
  1. How do today's t.v. and online commercials/ads influence our lifestyle choices? 
  2. Have companies become more cleaver, or have they become more transparent in the way they market there products?
