Most adults living unhealthy lifestyles

The overwhelming majority of adults in England are so unhealthy they put their lives at risk, a survey suggests.

The data from the Health Survey for England showed nearly nine in 10 had at least one unhealthy trait.

That was classed as those who smoke, drink more than 14 units of alcohol, eat fewer than five portions of fruit and vegetables, are obese or have low rates of physical activity.

Half of adults have two or more of these risk factors.

So are you one of the 9 out of 10?

bailliegillies - 04 Dec 2018 13:59:05 (#2 of 158)

Yes!

FleurDuMal - 04 Dec 2018 13:59:13 (#3 of 158)

Yep!

I'm living a fantastic lifestyle.

FleurDuMal - 04 Dec 2018 14:03:01 (#6 of 158)

To be fair, the only one I fall down on is alcohol consumption.

Other than that, I'm way healthy!

mingmong - 04 Dec 2018 14:03:49 (#7 of 158)

I'm so perfect I'm at no risk of dying whatsoever.

Agaliarept - 04 Dec 2018 14:03:55 (#8 of 158)

To be fair, the only one I fall down on is alcohol consumption.

And it's just smoking for me!

Between us we'd make one completely healthy human :)

It's like the old joke.

Doctor - if you cut out X, Y, and Z you'll live another 10 years

Patient - possibly, but what for?

bailliegillies - 04 Dec 2018 14:06:23 (#10 of 158)

If I'd wanted the kind of life they are suggesting we lead then we might as well all join a monastery or convent.

They don't appear to have included stress or lack of sleep, which are the biggest risk factors and lead to many of the others.

Peacock - 04 Dec 2018 14:23:30 (#12 of 158)

how many cigarettes per day are too many?

Rendered - 04 Dec 2018 14:49:35 (#13 of 158)

One.

RosyLovelady - 04 Dec 2018 14:58:24 (#14 of 158)

All the people in the past who were healthier than us are now dead.

bailliegillies - 04 Dec 2018 15:06:04 (#15 of 158)

Aye and they lead far more interesting lives.

TheExcession - 04 Dec 2018 15:08:49 (#16 of 158)

Wine is made of fruit and thus full of healthy vitamins.

Antimatter - 04 Dec 2018 15:18:15 (#17 of 158)

And part of your 5 portions of fruit & veg per day.

Agaliarept - 04 Dec 2018 15:18:27 (#18 of 158)

Vodka is made from potatoes therefore vodka is salad.

limegreen - 04 Dec 2018 15:25:07 (#19 of 158)

Potatoes don't count towards your five a day. In the UK. They do in the US.

Agaliarept - 04 Dec 2018 15:27:15 (#20 of 158)

What?!

Without my daily plate of chips counting towards my 5 a day i'm down to none a day :(
