Ironically, these diseases appear to increase in frequency as countries become more industrialized and people live longer! It might hence seem counterintuitive cause as a nation becomes more affluent, there is a significant rise in lifestyle-based or non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and auto-immune diseases. This happens quite predictably more when urbanization occurs, per capita income rises & wealth is created; as a result of this very wealth and affluence, our dietary and lifestyles choices raise the risk of these NCDs.
A simple example of how we are at risk as we become affluent: With the use of motorized vehicles and electronic devices (Mobiles, laptop, etc) our physical activity has been hampered and we are most likely to notice a consequent spike in obesity, high blood pressure (hypertension), depressions, elevated blood glucose levels, higher lipids etc. These risk factors in turn increases our odds of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, hormonal imbalances, inflammation, and gut related diseases. This becomes a daily Vicious Cycle.
The time has come to consciously step out of the ‘Vicious cycle; into the ‘Virtuous Cycle Of Good Health’! This includes eating right, staying active, sleeping well, creating a feel good environment, having family & friends in the social circle and even getting help at the right time.
