Disease and health

There are two categories of diseases. One is ‘diseases of affluence’ that inflict the rich such as heart diseases and cancer.Other is ‘diseases of poverty’ that inflict the poor such as infectious diseases or malnutrition.

Diseases of affluence happen because of abundance of unhealthy diet and diseases of poverty happen because of scarce access to healthy diet.

You do not have to be in either of these categories. Lowering unhealthy consumption and increasing healthy consumption will keep you away from both.

A very simple message right? Too obvious? If it is too simple and obvious then why do we have these diseases in the first place?
