Risk factors contributing to chronic disease – AIHW – 29 March 2012

“Chronic diseases are responsible for a large portion of the disease burden in Australia, and many are highly preventable by reducing known risk factors. This report shows that: ~Most people have at least one risk factor and more than 90% do not consume enough vegetables. ~Social disadvantage is associated with risky health behaviours. ~Nearly 60%of Australians do not undertake sufficient levels of physical activity, and many of us (almost 80%) usually spend 3 or more hours sitting during our leisure time.”
