5 Causes of Varicose Veins

Updated on: August 18, 2014
An article this week over at the HeraldNet mentions five different causes of varicose veins. A closer look at those five causes can assist you in taking better precautions to prevent the development of varicose veins in your own body. Here are the five causes mentioned in the article:
1. Aging
2. Athletics
3. Genetics
4. Obesity
5. Standing for long periods of time
Obviously there isn't a whole lot that you can do about some of those things. You're going to get older no matter what anti-aging options you consider. And you're going to have the same genes for the rest of your life. But proper exercise with proper care during that exercise can assist you in reducing your risks.
