Chronic diseases account for more than 64% of deaths in the country. According to the Secretary of Health Surveillance, Jarbas Barbosa, most deaths from chronic diseases such as obesity and smoking can be avoided.

When we talk about chronic diseases, there is still a perception that these deaths are almost natural for a long life, said during the launch of the survey Surveillance of Risk Factors for Chronic Diseases and Protection through telephone Vigitel Brazil 2010.

The Secretary recalled that in September this year, the United Nations (UN) will hold a meeting solely to address chronic disease worldwide. According to Barbosa, developing countries like Brazil are those that record the highest rates of cases.

The Vigitel Brazil 2010 shows that Brazilians are smoking less, but has remained sedentary and unhealthy diet. This is the fifth edition of the survey, conducted since 2006 through telephone interviews with adults (18 years). In 2010, 54,339 people were heard around 2000 in every major city in Brazil.
