Four Common Causes of Chronic Diseases
Four modifiable health risk behaviorsâ€”lack of physical activity, poor nutrition, tobacco use, and excessive alcohol consumptionâ€”are responsible for much of the illness, suffering, and early death related to chronic diseases. The following data illustrates the magnitude of some these health risk behaviors:
More than one-third of all adults do not meet recommendations for aerobic physical activity based on the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
In 2007, less than 22% of high school students and only 24% of adults reported eating 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables per day.
More than 43 million American adults (approximately 1 in 5) smoke.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death, and cigarette smoking causes almost all cases. Compared to nonsmokers, men who smoke are about 23 times more likely to develop lung cancer and women who smoke are about 13 times more likely. Smoking causes about 90% of lung cancer deaths in men and almost 80% in women. Smoking also causes cancer of the larynx, mouth and throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney, pancreas, cervix, and stomach.
Excessive alcohol consumption contributes to over 54 different diseases and injuries, including cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, liver, colon, and breast, liver diseases, and other cardiovascular, neurological, psychiatric, and gastrointestinal health problems.
