INVESTIGATION OF THE EFFECTS OF LOWER PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND THE EXTRAORDINARY USE OF ALCOHOL AMONG BULGARIAN PATIENTS AS RISK FACTORS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF LUNG CARCINOMA

Tanyo Stefanov

Abstract


Examining the frequency of reduced physical activity, we found that it was extremely common (63.20%) among the participants in our study. 22.46% of the respondents stated that they have moderate physical activity, and only 14.32% have the optimal physical activity for a number of diseases according to most authors. Analyzing the use of alcohol among the participants in our study, we found that as many as 39.38% of them showed an excessive use.
