A healthy lifestyle is important for everyone. This is a good idea for everyone, and especially for people with a mental illness as some of those affected can be at greater risk of physical health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. This can be due to the effects of weight gain combined with high blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar (sometimes called ‘metabolic syndrome’).
People tend to know very little when it comes to the dangers of smoking,” says Alexander Prokhorov, M.D., Ph.D., professor of behavioral science at MD Anderson.

Restricted in amount but not variety, Cornaro claimed to have achieved perfect health” up until his death more than 40 years later. Although he changed his birthdate as he aged, claiming that he had reached his 98th year, it is thought that he was around 84 when he died – still an impressive feat in the 16th Century, a time when 50 or 60 years old was considered elderly. In 1591, his grandson published his posthumous three-volume tome entitled Discourses on the Sober Life,” pushing dietary restriction into the mainstream, and redefining ageing itself.
Working in collaboration with the Noaber Foundation’s Healthy Life Alliance (HLA), the Major Alliance believes there is a need to build a sustainable and holistic health care system that is focused on Healthy Living. To achieve this, we have chosen four subthemes; food, housing, work, and leisure. We believe the extent in which someone is living a healthy life is determined by how they behave, what they eat, how they work and finding a balance in their free time. In cooperation with the HLA, the Noaber Foundation and an extensive list of further partners we organise tables which facilitate the process in which the vision, which has been outlined above, is turned into concrete results. This is done by inviting civil society, business and the government to the table.
Stimulating the regular practice of physical activities, which helps prepare the body and mind for everyday challenges is also part of our philosophy. This inspires us to maintain a platform to encourage sports, a platform that through the Sadia brand, sponsors a family of athletes in several modalities and sport projects. We thus contribute to the creation of new consumption habits and behavior, making us stronger and stronger.
