CM 5 Research on Noncommunicable Diseases

Non-communicable diseases (NCD) cause significant physical, emotional and economic damages for individuals, families and governments worldwide. Low and middle- income countries are the most affected., with approximately 80% of the world population and a limited ability to provide high quality health care to their citizens.

Health politicians realize by now that NCD need to be approached by conceptually linking biophysical dispositions to the growing environmental issues as well as to ongoing lifestyle changes at an individual level. This panel brings together new toxicological research results with traditional medical practices from Chinese and Indian regions.
