They were interviewed at home with 24-hour-habit questionnaire that included questions regarding their eating habits, sleep habits, and exercise habits.

Exercise habits including infrequent walking (odds ratio, OR 1.34, p < 0.001) of ages 35-44 and sleep habits (sleep over 5 hours per night) of age 45-54 (OR 1.07, p < 0.01) are significant with the effect on relation between age and habits. They were also more likely to report that nation’s healthcare was promoted from their habits as dietary improved on cardiovascular disease (odds ratio, OR 1.34, p < 0.001), healthy sleep manner improved on migraine (odds ratio, OR 1.15, p < 0.001) and pain relieve (odds ratio, OR 0.98, p < 0.001), and walking outside improved diabetes (odds ratio, OR 0.85, p < 0.01), cardiovascular disease (odds ratio, OR 0.76, p < 0.001), and pain relieve (odds ratio, OR 0.69, p < 0.001).
