Healthy lifestyles are the first step toward the prevention of disease and premature death. The major causes of death in the United States today are chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and stroke. The purpose of this book was to compare the health profile results of Seventh-day Adventist College students with the health profile results of State University students. The findings concluded that the Seventh-day Adventist scored significantly healthier in Wellness Now Scores, smoking score and alcohol consumption. These findings support the ideology that healthy lifestyles and health status are closely linked and that prevention is the best health care practice. Professionals in all health fields could utilize these results to support the ideology of health promotion and prevention as the best defense against premature morbidity and mortality. Constant evaluation of the long- term and short-term consequences of poor, as well as positive, health behaviors choices should be a driving force for all levels of health promotion policy makers.
