During 2005, the US spent almost $2 trillion on health care: for every dollar spent, .75 cents went towards treating chronic disease.
The vast majority of cases of chronic disease could be prevented or managed

80% of heart disease and stroke


80% of type 2 diabetes


40% of cancer

Prevention by four ways:

Stop tobacco use


Eat a healthy diet


Be physically active


Maintain a healthy weight

  Those who followed all four lifestyle factors had a 78% lower risk of developing a chronic disease than those with no healthy factors. The decreased risk of an individual disease associated with keeping all four lifestyle factors were:  

93% lower risk of diabetes


81% lower risk of having an Myocardial Infarction (MI)


50% lower risk of stroke


36% lower risk of cancer
