Lifestyles and health behaviours are complex and influenced by multiple factors including genetics, wider determinants of health, previous experiences, the environment, societal factors, cultural factors as well as individual and interpersonal factors. Behavioural risk factors such as tobacco and substance use, harmful alcohol consumption, sex and relationships, physical activity and diet have a strong influence on health and can influence long term ill health.
