Living a healthy lifestyle can help you enjoy good health and reduce your risk of developing major illnesses. The World Health Organization (WHO) states that while not all illnesses are curable, many fatalities, especially those caused by coronary heart disease and lung cancer, can be averted by leading a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, non-communicable diseases or illnesses linked to a certain lifestyle account for 72% of fatalities in the Philippines, according to data from the Department of Health (DOH) for 2021.
