Preface – Lifestyle Medicine 3rd Edition PDF

There is no longer any serious doubt that daily habits and actions profoundly impact both short- and long-term health and quality of life. The scientific and medical literature that supports this concept is now overwhelming.

Thousands of studies provide evidence that regular physical activity, maintenance of a healthy body weight, not smoking cigarettes, as well as following sound nutrition, stress reduction, and other health promoting practices all profoundly impact health. Conversely, an inactive lifestyle, obesity, high levels of stress, and cigarette smoking or exposure to cigarette smoke and other pollutants all significantly and negatively impact health. Since the publication of the second edition of Lifestyle Medicine (CRC Press, 2013), this literature has continued to grow stronger and even more robust. Lifestyle Medicine 3rd Edition PDF

The field of lifestyle medicine has continued to expand around the globe, and multiple new initiatives in the area of lifestyle medicine have sprung up in the last few years. Because the field of lifestyle medicine has grown and expanded, it is necessary for our Lifestyle Medicine text to continue to grow and expand in order to serve the needs of an increasing number of individuals who are incorporating lifestyle medicine practices in various components of health care. The text also serves other physicians and other health care professionals in their practices. Serving all these providers is the goal of the third edition of Lifestyle Medicine.
