Predicting future is often a losing game. We cannot precisely anticipate the weather forecast for tomorrow, and discussing the future of technology sounds like science fiction. Nevertheless, 2030 is almost 10 years ahead, and we can say for sure that nothing dramatic will happen in such a short period. We will hardly set colonies on Mars and print human organs with 3D printers that fast. However, some of the recent innovations will certainly change our lives in the following decade. Self-driving vehicles and smart machines are already here. Drone delivery is a highly-appreciated invention that will improve the quality
A gluten-free diet is a must for people with coeliac disease. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and oats. It restricts dietary habits of people with gluten intolerance. To address this issue, supermarkets filled their shelves with plenty of gluten-free products. In fact, gluten-free became synonymous with healthy. In fact, biscuits and bread without gluten are very healthy to those with the coeliac disease. Technically, they are the only option for people with the gluten intolerance. The benefits for people who can tolerate gluten, however, remain insufficient. The research conducted at the George Institute for Global
Current evolution in drugs and health care allowed people to live much longer. Living to 70 or 75 is nothing extraordinary these days, and even more people manage to celebrate their 100th birthday. There is no single key to longevity, however. Long-livers usually have other people who lived a long life in their family. They also stick to a certain lifestyle, like exercise or work during retirement. Long-livers always take activities, physical, mental, or both. It does not mean that they work hard to keep fit. They just get more social and involved in their community than passive aged people.
Coronary disease is still a major killer of people on the wrong side of 60. Some of them have a family history of cardiovascular conditions, while the others have earned a stroke through life. It is rather easy to look through one’s family history searching for warning signs. It is much more challenging to notice how our own body changes under the influence of outer factors. Living with heart disease requires stillness of nerves and prominent self-discipline from patients. Whatever caused the change in heart function the point is to maintain a stable blood pressure and control one’s cholesterol.
In many countries, polio is a distant memory. Thank to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, the incidents of disease reduced by 99% worldwide. The program provided live oral polio vaccines on the global scale. Combined with a strong political advocacy and mass mobilization, simple measures wiped polio away from most affected countries. Only marginalized rural communities preserved the virus so far. Today only Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and Pakistan remain polio-endemic. Low political advocacy, poor community participation, and vaccine failure are responsible for the inability to eradicate polio in these areas. Social awareness and consciousness are essential to establish herd
