Most U.S. Adults Fail in Healthy Behaviors

PositiveTips

Only 2.7% of all adults in the U.S. were found to have all 4 healthy lifestyle behaviors: a healthy diet, regular moderate physical activity, a healthy weight, and not smoking. Only 16% had three of the four healthy behaviors. The greatest benefit was found in those who had all four, but even having only one, improved the biomarkers for cardiovascular disease.

PositiveTip: Simple healthy behaviors, practiced on a consistent basis, yield significant benefits for health.
