Causes of Reduced Life Expectancy

Top Causes of reduced life expectancy include:

  • Cardiovascular disease – ischaemic heart disease (blocked arteries in your heart) and stroke are the most common causes of cardiovascular death.
  • Cancer – the lungs, bowel, prostate and breast are the most common sites of fatal cancers.
  • Smoking-related illnesses – include lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema and chronic bronchitis).
  • Injuries – suicide, road traffic accidents and falls are the most common causes of death from injury.
  • Diabetes.

Cardiovascular disease, cancer and injuries together cause over 70 per cent of all premature deaths.

To increase your life expectancy you should:

  • Avoid smoking.
  • Be physically active.
  • Reduce your weight if you are overweight.
  • Maintain a healthy blood pressure and cholesterol level.
  • Avoid alcohol above the recommended safe drinking levels.

Tackling these risk factors will prevent many chronic diseases from developing, which is much better than treating them after they occur.
