Wellness

"Chronic diseases are the most common and costly of all health problems, but they are also the most preventable. Four common, health-damaging, but modifiable behaviors—tobacco use, insufficient physical activity, poor eating habits, and excessive alcohol use—are responsible for much of the illness, disability, and premature death related to chronic diseases." [CDC: Chronic Disease Prevention and Promotion, The Power to Prevent, The Call to Control: At a Glance 2009]
