Abstract

Lifestyle is a key determinant in the prevention and management of chronic diseases. If we would exercise regularly, eat healthy, control our weight, sleep enough, manage stress, not smoke and use alcohol only moderately, 90% of type II diabetes, 80% of coronary heart disease, and 70% of stroke could be prevented. Unfortunately, global health statistics show that health promotion campaigns and healthcare have failed to persuade people to change and manage their lifestyles. A disruptive solution to this “tsunami” of chronic conditions is needed to radically improve people's abilities to manage their health.
