The European Society of Lifestyle Medicine is delighted to announce the ESLM Lifestyle Medicine Symposium at the 12th European Nutrition Conference FENS. 3 international Experts will highlight an important aspect of Lifestyle Medicine, global physical inactivity.
Physical inactivity is a major independent modifiable risk factor for chronic diseases (noncommunicable diseases, NCDs) such as cardiovascular disease, ischaemic stroke, type 2 diabetes, colon cancer, and breast cancer. It is also associated with other important health outcomes including mental health, injuries, falls, and obesity.
Globally, physical inactivity contributes to some 3.2 million deaths a year and is the fourth highest risk factor for death in the world, ahead of undernutrition, and alcohol use. Physical inactivity causes more than one in four cases of heart disease and of diabetes deaths, and more than one in five cases of breast and colon cancer.
