Top 100 Health Trends of 2012

From Stylish Workout Slippers to Fast Food Nutrition Graphics

— January 18, 2013 — Lifestyle
Considering 2012 was a rather ominous year with impending doom at its end -- for the uninitiated, the Mayan calendar ends on December 21st -- health trends were on the top-of-mind for many -- you know, just in case some zombies have to be battled.

Many health trends, such as fast food nutrition charts, took more of a cautionary tone than one of encouragement. Fortunately, not all health finds were so looming, as exemplified by the lighthearted pandemic-fighting backpacks and heart-starting vests.

Regardless of what you believe will happen on December 21st, the top health trends of the year should provide you with the information needed to ensure you're in tip-top shape and ready for the potential need to get into survival mode. If you're a non-believer in the alleged apocalypse looking for a way to apply the patterns seen in 2012's top health trends in 2013, check out our Health Trend Report.
