Pod

The leading causes of death in the United States have shifted from infectious and communicable diseases to chronic diseases: medical conditions that are long-lasting, persistent or recurrent. Physical activity and proper nutrition can largely prevent many chronic diseases, such as heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. In response to the rising rates of chronic disease, many local agencies are adopting land-use measures that facilitate healthy eating and active living.
