GDP publishes new report on Dairy and Non-Communicable Diseases
Date 06.05.2019 | Category: News
Global sustainable development is challenged by NCDs, which include cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and chronic lung diseases. Approximately 70% of all deaths annually worldwide are attributable to NCDs.
Poverty fuels NCDs. The socially disadvantaged tend to die sooner than those of means because of sub-optimal lifestyle choices and limited access to health services.
Modifiable risk factors (tobacco, physical inactivity, unhealthy diet, harmful use of alcohol) increase risk of NCDs.
In addition to the well-documented health and nutrition benefits of dairy consumption across all ages, dairy development positively impacts numerous economic and social factors associated with reduced poverty.
Sustainable food systems that integrate health, economic, societal and environmental solutions are integral to reducing NCD risk. For more visit globaldairyplatform.com/
