We explore 5 crucial risk factors that CAN be prevented 

What if the key to a longer life and better health could lie in 5 factors we all know but may underestimate? In this post, we explore a new global study that suggests that our daily habits can have a significant impact on our long-term health. Basically, there are 5 risk factors that are all preventable but have a huge impact on our health.

Let's get straight to it.

The 5 risk factors we've all heard of are:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Smoking.

But what exactly are risk factors?

In short, it is often closely linked to lifestyle and deals with areas that increase the risk of experiencing health problems over time. Therefore, working with risk factors can often lead to a reduced risk of developing health problems over time.

A new global study based on data from 1.5 million people in 34 countries has revealed that the aforementioned risk factors can explain as much as 50 percent of all cases of cardiovascular disease and 20 percent of all deaths.

This provides an incredible opportunity for prevention. It shows a significant potential to prevent cardiovascular disease and early death by intervening in unhealthy lifestyles in time. In other words, these are 5 areas where you can potentially have a huge impact by taking action.
