CDC data showed 10 of the 15 leading causes of death in the U.S. in 2011 were chronic diseases. The study published in The Lancet said 50.9% of U.S. adults have at least one chronic disease and 26% have two or more. The CDC gave four strategies to deal with chronic disease: surveillance, promotion of healthy behaviors, health system interventions to boost preventive services and community-supported disease management.
