First, we detect non-communicable diseases that cause 7 out of 10 deaths worldwide.
In numbers, the number of deaths from this type of noncommunicable diseases is 41 million per year, of which 15 million are people of childbearing age (from 30 years of age). Most of this mortal population is in developing countries.
Among non-communicable diseases, we detect cancer, diabetes, pneumonia, heart disease, and stroke. However, WHO also points to mental health as another factor to consider.
Anxiety and depression are the main conditions of current societies. According to the WHO, only depression affects 300 million people.
“An unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise, unhealthy diet, smoking, and high levels of alcohol consumption caused these deaths. As we can see, there are several risk factors that we can reduce. Citizens need to take better care of our health by reducing risk factors, ”says Dr Raul Gonzalez Montero, a WHO representative.
