Chronic diseases are largely preventable diseases

Lifestyle and diet transformation over the last century coincides with the evolution of diseases from mostly infectious to mostly noncommunicable (chronic) in origin.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), chronic diseases will be responsible for almost 3/4 of deaths around the world by 2020.
They also say, "Chronic diseases are largely preventable diseases....Diet has been known for many years to play a key role as a risk factor for chronic diseases. What is apparent at the global level is that great changes have swept the entire world since the second half of the twentieth century, inducing major modifications in diet, first in industrial regions and more recently in developing countries. Traditional, largely plantbased diets have been swiftly replaced by high-fat, energy-dense diets with a substantial content of animal-based foods." http://bit.ly/1nW4Pda
