    Unhealthy behaviors in American adults
  • Description:
    Called also: Unhealthy behaviors in American adults. Americans are living longer, but unhealthy behaviors continue to compromise our health. • 1 in 4 adults is a current smoker • More than one in three adults is obese • Only one in five adults meets recommended levels of physical activity • Fewer than half of adults with high blood pressure and less than a third of adults with high cholesterol have it under control. Small Steps can make a big difference. For example, if each American cut back just 100 Calories a day for 3 years, we could prevent over 57 million potentially fatal cases of heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Health care workers can: • Screen for risk factors • Counsel, treat and monitor patients • Encourage them to take their medicines and make healthier choices • Connect patients to community resources
