LIFESTYLE DISEASES AND GENETIC DISORDERS
You are what you Eat’ is an old adage which we probably have heard innumerous times. According to reports, over 61 per cent of all deaths in India are due to lifestyle or non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
While lifestyle diseases are commonly attributed to the way we live our life and is commonly caused by using drugs, alcohol, leading a sedentary life with negligible or no physical activity, and eating unhealthily; Genetic Disorders are mostly caused by an inherited genetic condition, new mutations or environmental causes. Most of the common diseases which we increasingly find in our young generation include Obesity, Cancer, Mental and hormonal disorders, heart diseases etc. Thus, to combat this increasingly grave situation it is important that we take preventive remedies and indulge in activities that aim to reduce the likelihood of a disease or disorder affecting people.
