Resumen This book is divided into three main sections: Part 1 reviews the origins and scale of current health problems and discusses the US and British experience of health promotion programmes, from both an economic and a medical viewpoint. Part 2 provides background information concerning 5 major risk factors (exercise, nutrition, smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, stress) which may interact to produce various diseases, but which can be favourably influenced by worksite health promotion activities. Part 3 discusses how these risk factors interact to contribute to a number of major diseases such as cancer, heart disease and stroke. The practical application of some health promotion strategies is also discussed.
