Seven habits for healthy living

What is an Unhealthy Lifestyle Illness?
In Japan the three main causes of death are cancer, stroke, and heart disease.

These illnesses are often caused by such conditions as hypertension, hyperlipidemia and cholesterol, diabetes, and obesity (also known as "a quartet of death"). In recent years the rate of these conditions has increased.

Studies have shown that these illnesses are not only caused by such factors as aging and genetics, but can also be prompted by unhealthy lifestyle habits. These include improper eating habits (which is easy to fall into in our present age), lack of exercise, excessive drinking, smoking, and stress.

For this reason this group of diseases have become known as "unhealthy lifestyle illnesses."

Features of an unhealthy lifestyle illness
1.Primarily caused by unhealthy lifestyle habits.

2.Because the period before symptoms appear is long, the disease will have reached a fairly advanced stage when symptoms are seen

3.As symptoms worsen, effective treatment will become more difficult

It is important to remember to walk at a pace rapid enough to generate slight body sweat.Walking also helps alleviate stress and maintain proper function of the heart and lungs.

Preventing Against Unhealthy Lifestyle Illnesses (a campaign against The Five Ss)
1970s research study conducted in the United States called the Framingham Study, it was confirmed that seven healthy habits had an influence on human life span.

The study showed that people who observed more than six of the seven healthy habits lived an average of thirty-three years beyond the age of forty-five. In contrast, those people who observed only three of the seven healthy habits, lived an average of twenty-one years beyond the age of forty-five.
