      World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe (‎EUR/ICP/LVNG 01 07 02, 1999)‎
      A healthy lifestyle is a way of living that lowers the risk of being seriously ill or dying early. Not all diseases are preventable, but a large proportion of deaths, particularly those from coronary heart disease and lung cancer, can be avoided. Scientific studies have identified certain types of behaviour that contribute to the development of noncommunicable diseases and early death. Health is not only just about avoiding disease. It is also about physical, mental and social wellbeing. When a healthy lifestyle is adopted, a more positive role ...

This is a challenging task for both decision-makers and public health actors and advocates. The scientific evidence on social determinants is strong but is discussed mainly by researchers. This booklet is part of a WHO Regional Office for Europe campaign to present the evidence on social determinants in a clear and understandable form. The booklet identifies the broad ...

Это также касается физического, психического и социального благополучия. При принятии здорового образа жизни более позитивный ...

Этот буклет является частью кампании Европейского регионального бюро ВОЗ по представлению фактических данных о социальных детерминантах ...
