Did you know?
Chronic diseases (e.g., heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and chronic lung disease) are responsible for 7 out of 10 deaths.
Treatment costs for people with chronic diseases accounts for 86% of our nation’s healthcare expenditures
Eating in healthy ways can help reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis, and several types of cancer, as well as assisting in maintaining a healthy bodyweight
Engaging in regular physical activity is one of the most important things a person can do to improve their health. Physical activity strengthens bones and muscles, reduces stress and mood-based disorders, and makes achieving bodyweight goals easier
Tobacco users who successfully quit greatly reduce their risk of disease and premature death, while improving overall health, quality of life, and length of life.
Prevention or early intervention for chronic diseases is critical in order to help individuals live longer, healthier lives and to reduce the negative impacts of health care related costs.
