Poor lifestyle choices, such as smoking, alcohol use, poor diet, lack of physical activity and poor stress relief are key contributors in the development and progression of preventable chronic diseases, including obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and several types of cancer. Almost 90% of hospital admissions and prescription costs are for treatment of chronic diseases. Fortunately, over 75% of these chronic illnesses can be treated by the choices that we make in our lives. I think that number can be pushed even higher with preventative measures, stopping smoking, quitting drinking, eating healthy, and getting regular exercise. In other words, your health is in your hands and it's your responsibility!
