The bible obligates you to be as careful as possible not to do anything damaging to your health.
When you do something to guard your heath, elevate your behavior from merely a routine procedure, to the awareness of performing a mitzvah.

Subject: 50 Cal. - Missed by .........that much!!
This is a very,very lucky sportsman. The guy is shooting a 50
caliber rifle. Watch the dust, when the bullet returns, after
The target, a steel plate was 1000 yards away You can hear
the ping of the hit, next the ricocheting bullet comes back, and
then hits his earmuffs. He thought he was hit.
The footage is amazing, you can hear the bullet as it tumbles
through the air on its course back toward the shooter. He's
lucky, it hit the dirt first. He is okay, and obviously very
lucky. It could have been between his eyes.....
The bullet grazed his earmuffs, What a difference an inch
The fast of 17 Tammuz is Tuesday July 15
The Fast of the 17th of Tammuz is Tuesday. According to Torah Tidbits, the fast starts at 4:19 AM and ends at 8:16 PM in Jerusalem. In Tel Aviv, the fast starts around 4:19 AM and ends at 8:19 PM.
The fast of the 17th of the Hebrew month of Tammuz, known as Shivah Asar B'Tammuz, is the start of a three-week mourning period for the destruction of Jerusalem and the two Holy Temples.
The fast commemorates five tragic events that occurred on this date:
(Originally, the fast was observed on the Ninth of Tammuz since that was the day Jerusalem fell prior to the destruction of the First Temple in 586 BCE. However, after Jerusalem fell on the 17th of Tammuz – prior to the destruction of the Second Temple – the Sages decided upon a combined observance for both tragedies, the 17th of Tammuz.)
