Factors effecting health and wellbeing adversely are health risks. The common factors are age, intake medicines, previous health events such as surgery or injury, health habits and lifestyle such as overeating, smoking, alcohol consumption, drug use, pollution, diseases and disorders.
Health and wellbeing are affected by many factors, and those that are associated with ill health, disability, disease or death are known as risk factors. Risk factors are presented here individually, however in practise they do not operate in isolation. They often coexist and interact with one another.
