Examples of target patient behaviors include, but are not limited to eliminating tobacco use, improving diet, increasing physical activity, and moderating alcohol consumption.
What are the preventive chronic diseases lifestyle medicine can help prevent?
Eighty-two percent of chronic diseases can be prevented.

Lifestyle Medicine can help prevent the following:
