(HealthDay News) -- While risk factors, age and family history play a role in a man's health, your daily habits and health regimen also have a major impact on how healthy you are.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these preventive health guidelines for men:

  • Eat healthy foods. Maintain a diet that's low in fat and salt, and rich in fruits and vegetables.
  • Consume only moderate amounts of alcohol and caffeine, and don't smoke.
  • Have regular dental and vision checkups.
  • Get regular exercise for 30 minutes to 40 minutes, three to five days per week.
  • Protect your skin with sunscreen any time you are outside.
  • Guard against hearing loss by wearing ear protection when exposed to loud noise.
  • Take safety precautions whenever you can: wear a seatbelt, practice safe sex, and wear protective gear when playing sports.
