Consider these epidemic statistics:

  • Studies by the World Health Organisation show that more than 1.9 billion adults are overweight. Of these over 650 million are obese.

  • 39% of adults  are overweight and 13% are obese.

  • Over 340 million children and adolescents are overweight or obese.

  • Obesity is preventable.

Heart Health
  • Cardiovascular Diseases are the number 1 cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVDs than from any other cause.

  • An estimated 17.9 million people died from CVDs in 2016, representing 31% of all global deaths. Of these deaths, 85% are due to heart attack and stroke.

  • Most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented by addressing behavioural risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and obesity, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol.

  • It is estimated that 175 million people have undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes. It is expected to affect 592 million people by 2035

  • Obesity is the most potent risk factor for Type 2 diabetes. It accounts for 80–85% of the overall risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and underlies the current global spread of the condition.

  • Diabetes is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke and lower limb amputation.

  • Diabetes can be treated and its consequences avoided or delayed with diet, physical activity

  • Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, and is responsible for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018.

  • Globally, about 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer.

  • The total annual economic cost of cancer is estimated to be $1.16 trillion!

  • 30-50% of cancers could be prevented by avoiding risk factors and implementing existing evidence-based prevention strategies. 

  • Approximately one in six have an autoimmune disease. Which is more than cancer and heart disease combined.

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most common functional gastrointestinal disorder. 

Auto immune
  • Chronic disease will generate $47 trillion in healthcare costs globally by 2030 if the epidemic is unchecked.

  • That’s more than the annual GDP of the six largest economies in the world.
