Your Guide to Healthy Lifestyle
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), problems such as diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension are referred to as diet-related chronic diseases and are termed Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). The list goes on, and includes cancer, chronic kidney disease, osteoporosis, gallbladder disease, and many more.
The WHO Global Status Report 2010 on NCDs recorded a staggering 36.1 million deaths from the four main NCDs – heart diseases, chronic lung diseases, cancers and diabetes, in 2008. Nearly 80% of these deaths occurred in low- and middle-income countries. NCD deaths are projected to increase by 15% globally between 2010 and 2020, reaching 44 million a year.
