Results: Findings of the study showed that more than 80 percent of students had a desirable body mass index, 46 percent of them had a good physical activity, and approximately 32 percent of them had enough sun exposure. More than a third of them were exposed to second hand smoke, and less than 4 percent had nutritionally desirable lifestyle.
