Adolescence can be referred to as a transitional phase of growth and development where various physiological changes take place in the body during the period from puberty to legal adulthood (13- 19 years). Adolescent health deals with preventing, detecting and treating young people’s health and well-being. The sedentary lifestyle is the key contributor which affects the teen health (Excess Tobacco/ Alcohol, Lack of vegetables & fruits, no exercise etc.). The behavioral patterns established during these developmental periods help determine young peoples current health status and their risk for developing chronic diseases in adulthood.
