We have a situation that we did not hear coming, Non- communicable diseases. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) pose an enormous threat to global health and development. The amazing thing about them is that we can each act to improve our own lives. As severe as the consequences for NCDs are, we have a chance to nip them at the bud with simple lifestyle and habit choices. Most of these diseases are simply caused by lack of exercise, an improper and unbalanced diet and unhealthy lifestyles.
