HEALTH RISK BEHAVIOURS
Compared with the results of the 1995 NHS, the 2004-05 survey showed that more adults are drinking alcohol at risky or high risk levels (8% in 1995 and 13% in 2004-05) and more are overweight or obese (45% in 1995 and 53% in 2004-05), after adjusting for age differences. In contrast, there was no change over this time period in the proportion of adults reporting that they smoked (23%) or that they did no exercise or had exercised at a very low level (70%).
