  • LIFESTYLE
    • Risk
      • a measure of the probability that damage to health will occur as a result of a given hazard
      • 2 elements
        • probability of hazard occurring
        • consequence of it
      • measurement
        • 0% - no harm 100% - harm deffo
      • needs to be a time scale
      • often relative
    • risk factors and CHD
      • smoking
        • 2-6 times more likely
      • high bp
        • prolonged stress, diets, lack exercise increase
      • blood cholesterol levels
        • kept lower with few saturated fatty acids in diet
      • obesity
        • body mass index over 25 increases risk
      • diet
        • high levels of salt raise BP and high saturated fatty acids increase cholesterol
      • physical activity
        • aerobic lowers BP
  • lifestyle choices and cancer
    • smoking
      • smokers
      • passively breathe tobacco smoke
