Health prevention is directly related to the actions taken to avoid disease. These are measures that are adopted at all times to prevent the appearance of a disease.
The care and attention that we must give to our mind and body are essential to our health and quality of life.
According to data provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), chronic non-communicable diseases are responsible for 60% of deaths on our planet. But it is estimated that their progress could be controlled, or at least reduced, if specific health prevention programs were applied on a global scale.
There are certain types of diseases, such as chronic respiratory or cardiovascular diseases, which would benefit, with priority, from specific prevention programs applicable to their own characteristics. For both respiratory diseases and those linked to cardiovascular irregularities, doctors focus their efforts on promoting the practice of physical exercise and a healthy diet with more vegetables and fruits in their patients.
