The Global State of Health

GLOBAL STATE OF HEALTH We are experiencing alarming rates of global EPIDEMICS. We have more than 1 billion overweight adults, and 530 million of them are obese. Evidence of the obesity epidemic is everywhere, with 50+ health implications for health and chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, certain forms of cancer, hypertension and stroke. There is a global increase in the number of people who suffer from complex, chronic diseases: cancer, diabetes, heart disease, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, chronic fatigue syndrome, etc. Here are the current chronic disease statistics . . .

 

— Global cancer data: 14.1 million new cases and 8.2 million cancer deaths in 2012

— Every minute one woman dies from breast cancer

— Every minute two people die from lung cancer

— Every minute eight people die from diabetes

— Every minute one person dies from cardiovascular disease

— Eight millions deaths worldwide per year from hypertension

The Gap Between Research and Practice

The system of medicine practiced today by most physicians is oriented toward acute care- the diagnosis and treatment of trauma or illness that is of short duration and in need of urgent care, such as pneumonia, appendicitis, stroke, dengue fever or a broken leg. Physicians apply specific, prescribed treatments such as drugs or surgery that aim to treat an immediate problem or symptom.

 

Unfortunately, the acute-care approach to medicine lacks the proper methodology and tools for preventing and treating complex, chronic diseases. In most cases, it does not take into account the unique genetic makeup of each individual, factors such as environmental exposure to toxins, and aspects of today’s diet lifestyle that have a direct influence on the rise in chronic disease in modern society.

 

There is a huge gap between research and the way doctors practice. The gap between emerging research in basic sciences and integration into medical practice is enormous—as long as 50 years—particularly in the area of complex, chronic illnesses.

 

Most physicians are not adequately trained to assess the underlying causes of complex, chronic diseases, and to apply strategies such as nutrition, diet, and exercise to both treat and prevent these illnesses in their patients.
