The World Health Organization, and several research studies published worldwide, have identified “Modern Lifestyle”, comprising of a high-fat commercial diet, low levels of physical activity, obesity, stress, smoking, and lack of safety adherence, as the cause for almost 80% medical ailments worldwide.
Our highly automated, fast-paced, high pressured, global lifestyles, have resulted in an epidemic of Chronic diseases including, Cardiac Ailments, Hypertension, Diabetes, Cancers, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Depression, and Psychosomatic ailments, account for over 80% medicare costs worldwide and in addition greatly impair our working capability, costing billions in lost productivity.
