If we don’t watch out, it’s all too easy to end up with a gastrointestinal problem – severe abdominal pain, gall stones, peptic ulcers, acid reflux and, in worst case scenarios, even liver failure.

The good news it that these can all be avoided by adopting better ways of living. Below are 12 habits you really should think about quitting, if you want to stay healthy!
