What Can Blood Tell You About Your Health? (Infographic)

While you may think of a blood test as nothing more than an annoying annual formality, there’s a lot more that you can learn from your blood, as long as you know the right questions to ask it.

This new infographic, by WellnessFX and Column Five Media, outlines some of the useful health information you can learn from your blood, from your heart attack risk to your Vitamin D levels. Even if you don’t plan to go get a blood diagnostic test, you can still learn from its suggestions of which foods help and hinder cholesterol levels and inflammation. Check it out below!
