- heart disease
- some cancers
- cerebrovascular diseases (stroke)
- some lung diseases (emphysema)
- obesity (clinical diagnosis)
All of these are considered lifestyle diseases by the general public and the medical community. And they are all, on some level, completely, 100% preventable. So should they not be considered diseases b/c there is a conscious choice not being made to stop making poor decisions?
Just some food for thought.
