Secular Trends and Diseases - Global Burden of Ethnic Population in Developing Countries

Panel abstract

Proper dosage of medicine is important for treatment of any disease and proper lifestyle factor is also equally important for preventive medicine for good quality of life. Controlled lifestyle may keep us fit and healthy in every aspect. The biological and psychological changes are irreversible, which weaken the human ability for survival and eventually result in death. The reduction in vitality increases one's vulnerability to diseases. The transition from adulthood to old age is perceived as a process of loss of physical and mental well being. A wide gap separates the growing generation from decaying generation. Investigations of human fertility, growth, and development are closely related to the topic of nutrition and are fundamental to studies of adaptation in modern human populations. Recent emphasis has been placed on the importance of Communicable and non-communicable diseases of the progression of effect of secular trends on disease and its natural history. Human body composition is one of the important factors these disease progression. The use of anthropometry as an indicator of nutritional and health status of adults has now been well established and the problem lies in major public health issues especially among rural underprivileged adults of developing countries (WHO 1995).
