With cardiovascular issues on top, as the #1 case of premature death for adults in the U.S., according to governmental Centers for Disease Control and Preventon (CDC).
Followed by cancer and diabetes. Plus 1800 health issues more, physically and mentally. Based on lack of healthy diet and physical exercise.
