Specialists of the medical school at Emory University (USA) found that a significant part of the population, mostly women, are not ready to lead a healthy lifestyle, making their choice in favor of pleasant but harmful habits.
Scientists could announce this after the experiment, in which about 4000 volunteers took part. The specialists analyzed the lifestyle and habits of people with diabetes and noted that 20% of women suffering from this disease drink drugs instead of switching to a healthy diet.
In addition, scientists drew attention to the fact that 87% of all respondents knew that the main factor that causes diabetes is overweight and obesity. 67% of the participants admitted that they had repeatedly received information from their doctors about proper nutrition and exercise, however, they were not ready to change their way of life and continued to eat incorrectly.
Scientists emphasize that women are the most negligent to the state of health. Their choice is a medicine, not a healthy lifestyle.
