Four noncommunicable diseases, four shared risk factors

Table: Four noncommunicable diseases, four shared risk factors.

People who die prematurely from noncommunicable diseases die from preventable heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancers and asthma as a result of increased levels of exposure to tobacco use, unhealthy diets, physical inactivity and the harmful use of alcohol; and ineffective and inequitable health care services for people with noncommunicable diseases.
