Biomedical and behavioral science research conducted during the latter half of this century has convincingly demonstrated the influence of personal behavior on disease pathophysiology. Furthermore, change in behavior has been shown to reduce disease morbidity and mortality. Two examples of the latter, from the many that will be cited in this chapter, are the changes in life-style that account for as much as 50% of the greater than 30% reduction in cardiovascular mortality that has occurred in the past 20 years (Goldman & Cook, 1984; Taylor, Ironson, & Burnett, 1990), and the changes in sexual behavior among homosexuals that have reduced the incidence of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) in the gay community (Stall, Coates, & Hoff, 1988). Research conducted within the field of behavioral medicine has contributed significantly to the progress that has been made toward effective prevention and treatment of these and many other medical disorders.
