A wide range of behaviours can influence health. In broad terms these have been classified in positive and negative terms as health-protective or health-risk behaviours.

Finally, there is an outline of lifestyle factors that can have health consequences, and this section concludes by examining the main theories that have been developed to explain the variation in health-related behaviours.
