According to the Centers For Disease Control, almost 900,000 Americans die prematurely every year from lifestyle diseases, which include heart disease, stroke, and cancer and 20% to 40% of these deaths are preventable. More often than not, it is lifestyle choices that dictate these conditions.
The World Health Organization reports that lifestyle diseases account for a staggering 70% of all deaths and that more than ever before diet and lack of physical activity is driving these numbers.
In most cases, all of these debilitating and deadly lifestyle diseases and their consequences can be avoided. The choices you make today can create a level of health and wellbeing that steers you away from disease and toward a long and healthy life.
