How long will you live?
Consider the facts:
  • Every year, seven out of 10 deaths among Americans are from chronic diseases. Heart disease, cancer, and stroke account for more than 50 percent of all deaths.
  • Four unhealthy behaviors drive much of the illness and death related to these diseases:
    1. Lack of physical activity
    2. Poor nutrition
    3. Tobacco use
    4. Excessive alcohol consumption
Research from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control says that people who change their unhealthy behaviors are:
  • 66 percent less likely to die early from cancer
  • 65 percent less likely to die early from cardiovascular disease
  • 57 percent less likely to die early from other causes
