The various remedies like antibiotics and vaccines made changes in the evolution of the illnesses. In the past people feared the inflectional diseases and plague together with other similar horrors which cut through the society like a grim reaper with a sickle.

The flow of history gave birth to myriads of totally new health problems which are bearing the title of the diseases of the technogenic civilization.  Currently these are the most popular health issues which are capturing the humanity into the cell of malfunction.

The Most Widespread Diseases

The scientists became rather interested in the problems which harm human health in the 21st century. They conducted a special statistical analysis of the population in the world to detect the problems which worry people the most. The results have shown the following information:

  • People complained most regarding insomnia and frequent headaches which seem to be the symptoms of depression.
  • More and more citizens tend to have frequent respiratory problems.
  • Growing pain in the back.

Judging from the complaints of people the doctors proclaimed the most popular diseases:

  1. Depression
  2. Sharp respiratory diseases
  3. Osteochondrosis

Now let us take a closer look at these popular enemies of human wellbeing:

Depression is a disease that belongs to affective mental disorders. It is often characterized with low mood, slow reaction and mental suppression. There are surely some other symptoms which are not so obvious but the existence of depression can be detected by experts only.

The study of the depression mechanisms still continues and the factors of predisposition are already known. The constant stress of the routine life, the lack of sleep these are the most characteristic features for dwellers of large megapolises, the presence of harmful habits contributes greatly to the growth of sticking thoughts which press on the consciousness of the person  and lead to depression rate growth. No wonder that depression is often titled the danger of a new age.

Respiratory diseases begin at a very early age and they are caused with a variety factors which are predominating in the society. A harmful ecology, totally new viruses and the area of spreading are standing at the gates to health issues which are wide open for new visitors.

People since a very early age start experiencing the horrors of suffocating coughing, problems with breathing and other side effects which are caused by harmful bacteria which are quickly running through large concentration of people in supermarkets, shops and other public places.

Osteochondrosis is a degenerative disease of the spine that is caused by slow destruction of the spinal tissues and suppression of spinal brain neural segments. Such health issue leads to appearance of pain and other unpleasant experience.

This problem with body is caused by the growing comfort level. We move less and eat more harmful food. An average weight of a person is growing as well. All this contributes to degradation of the human motorical system.

 The Deadliest Diseases

As you might have guessed the previously described issues are not deadly ones but rather annoying ones. However, there is a special category of illnesses which is growing with every year and taking more and more lives.

  • The heart attacks
  • Oncological issues
  • Poisoning

As per statistics the heart problems take the greatest potion of lives. The cholesterol level, lack of physical fitness and high blood pressure give a hard time to the heart bringing it closer to self-destruction. The stress is the moving factor for blood flow disorder and the heart is the organ that deals with the whole process of blood pumping.

Oncological diseases are the horror of the 21st century. This is the second reason for mortality among people of various age. The scientist understand the process of cancer development but they can’t figure the reasons of its appearance in the body. It is sad to admit but there is no effective means of 100% treatment.

The poisoning is the third most dangerous disease that is caused by the products of human industry. We manufacture a lot of things for the growth of comfort but in fact we have to sacrifice a lot to get the desired things. The industry, cars and other sources produce the poison that we inhale and even consume with food.

As you can see the problems with health come from the most unexpected places. Among the newest ones we can see diabetes, Aids, increased obesity and even addiction to the Internet. Fortunately the future is in our hands and we are the ones who will decide what our health will be as we are the architects of our own bodies.
