How Can Healthy Habits Prevent Chronic Diseases?

Did you know that 80% of chronic diseases result from unhealthy lifestyle habits? Healthy habits can prevent, slow, or reverse the damage from high cholesterol or high blood sugar. Practicing and building healthy habits can help reduce the risk of heart attack by 80%, stroke by 70%, type 2 diabetes by 90%, and cancer by 50%. By building healthier habits, you are en route to preventing chronic diseases.

Chronic diseases — such as diabetes, cancer, asthma, and heart disease — are the leading causes of death and disability. The United States spends $4 trillion (around $12,000 per person) annually on healthcare, and more than 75% went to treating the rising prevalence of chronic diseases. Fortunately, Harvard School of Public Health, and Stanford Center on Longevity’s evidence-based research proved that building healthy lifestyle habits can prevent chronic disease, extend longevity, and improve quality of life.

The Liu Charitable Foundation thus devoted the charitable Lively Habits App and a series of Lively Habits Video intended to educate, motivate, and condition personal behavior change by integrating 10 evidence-based lifestyle habits to benefit public health for a low-cost and low-maintenance healthy life. Download the Lively Habits app to help you keep track of your 10 healthy lifestyle habits. Go Lively!
