Specialists from the All-Russian Public Opinion Foundation (FOM) conducted a study of Russians’ attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. It turned out that almost half (49 per cent) of the country’s residents consider it harmful to reject animal products.
The study also found that 41 per cent of Russians go in for sports at least once a week. However, not all residents of the country adhere to the diet (33 per cent), some manage to eat only when it is possible to find time for this (65 per cent).
Experts noted that the residents of Russia were divided in their opinion about taking care of their health, so that half of them when they fall ill, turn to doctors (44 per cent), and the other half (46 per cent) prefer to be treated on their own, relying on their own knowledge and feelings. Nevertheless, almost all respondents (89 per cent) trust the services of conventional rather than alternative medicine. In particular, 65 per cent of respondents trust doctors in polyclinics.
