Preventive Medicine and Chronic Diseases

Chronic disease crisis is an enormous threat around the globe currently, which has been brought about by risk factors that are preventable.

Chronic disease is a disease that persists over a long period of time. Chronic disease can hinder independence and the health of individuals with disabilities, as it might create additional activity limitations. People with chronic disease often think that they are free from the disease when they have no symptoms. Having no symptoms, however, does not necessarily mean that chronic disease has disappeared. Chronic diseases tend to become more common with age. Chronic diseases in developed countries include arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, heart attacks, stroke, cancer (colon and breast cancer), obesity, diabetes etc.

The good news is that chronic disease can be prevented or controlled through 1) regular participation in physical activity, 2) eating healthy, 3) not smoking, and 4) avoiding excessive alcohol consumption.
