In business and industry, safety is at the forefront of design, planning, architecture, factory layout, worker education, and virtually every aspect of operations. That's mainly because safe workplaces save owners money in insurance premiums. Likewise, many individuals, particularly the elderly and disabled, have safe products and home features in mind when they shop for retail goods, houses, or condos. How can you, no matter what your age, live a safer, more accident-free life? There are, fortunately, plenty of ways to achieve a low-risk lifestyle.


Along with vehicle features like CAS (collision avoidance systems), consumers are opting for things like in-home lifts to reduce the chance of falling, taking self-defense training to minimize the chance of injury during an assault, getting frequent medical checkups to catch diseases in early stages, and avoiding excessively risky behavior like rock climbing and sky diving. Here's more about safety enhancing activities, products, and behaviors that can literally add years to your life.

Collision Avoidance Systems

Newer cars and trucks come with collision avoidance features as standard, even on lower priced models. CAS includes a series of computer programs and other electronic devices that sense the presence of nearby vehicles that are moving too quickly and have a high risk of causing an accident. The system alerts your car's braking and steering to slow down and get out of the way of an oncoming truck or car. Many insurers offer significant discounts to drivers who use CAS in their cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs.

Personal Lifts

In-home lifts are not only stylish, attractive, competitively priced but greatly reduce a homeowner's chance of being injured in a fall down a flight of stairs. For instance, a DUO through floor lift is an easy to install unit that conveys passengers between floors quickly and with zero risk of injury. If you've attended a home show or taken a tour of a new housing development in the past year or two, you've no doubt seen various styles and sizes of home lifts in operation. Not only do the units look great and offer a large measure of personal safety, they have the potential to boost resale value if you ever decide to put your home on the market.

Twice Yearly Medical Checkups

Opting to visit the doctor twice per year instead of doing the typical annual trip to the clinic means you can significantly increase your chance of catching deadly diseases in their earliest stages. And that makes good sense for people of all ages, occupations, and walks of life. This is a smart way to start a healthy lifestyle, armed with knowledge specific to you. Depending on your insurance coverage, you might have to pay out of pocket for an additional yearly checkup or screening, but the cost is worth it in most every situation.

Avoiding Risky Behaviors

While few people agree on the precise definition of the word risky, insurance companies are happy to take on the task. One way to save on life insurance and create a safer lifestyle is to avoid activities and behaviors that insurance actuaries call risky. A short list includes things like cave exploring, driving over the posted speed limit, smoking, sky diving, not using seat belts, consuming excessive amounts of alcohol, and spending too much time in the sun.

The researchers exposed saliva samples from Covid-19 patients to the ACE2 gum and found that levels of viral RNA fell so dramatically to be almost undetectable.

A chewing gum laced with a plant-grown protein serves as a "trap" for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, reducing viral load in saliva and potentially tamping down transmission, finds a new study.

The researchers exposed saliva samples from Covid-19 patients to the ACE2 gum and found that levels of viral RNA fell so dramatically to be almost undetectable, indicates the study published in the journal Molecular Therapy.

"SARS-CoV-2 replicates in the salivary glands, and we know that when someone d sneezes, coughs, or speaks some of that virus can be expelled and reach others," said researcher Henry Daniell from the University of Pennsylvania in the US.

"This gum offers an opportunity to neutralise the virus in the saliva, giving us a simple way to possibly cut down on a source of disease transmission," Daniell added.

To test the chewing gum, the team grew angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) in plants, paired with another compound that enables the protein to cross mucosal barriers and facilitates binding, and incorporated the resulting plant material into cinnamon-flavoured gum tablets.
