It is important to be fully informed about how our bodies can be affected by different experiences. We have compiled some useful statistics to keep you informed of the risks to your health from your lifestyle and environment.
These useful statistics pages contain information on the life expectancy of the population of Great Britain and how it has increased over the past 20 years. Interestingly the average age of women having their first baby increased to 27.3 years of age. It is clear that the UK population is increasing year on year.
We have gathered another set of useful statistics related to lifestyle, which includes the impact of smoking. Approximately 12 million adults in the UK smoke cigarettes; 28% of men and 24% of women. The drinking patterns of the UK have grown; 75% of men and 60% of women in Great Britain have an alcoholic drink on at least one day during the week. In recent years the proportion of men and women who are obese or overweight has risen.
Workplace accidents account for an increasing number of injuries and fatalities each year. There are about 1.6 million work injuries each year and 2.2 million cases of ill health caused or made worse by work. There seems to be better news from the UK environment as there have been substantial improvements in greenhouse gas emissions. Find all the information you need and more on thefitmap.co.uk.
