Global Oral Anti-Diabetic Drugs Market Review & Forecast; 2014-2018 & 2019 -2024
This headline was among my Google Alerts on Diabetes; It was the figures that caught my deep interest.
We are well aware that the incidences of Diabetes is on the increase globally, we also know what the consequences are;
(1) An increase in personal health expenditure
2. Governments budgets on Healthcare going through the roof
3. Rising costs of health Insurance, or un-affordable
4. An increase in Taxes
6. More people living longer on drugs.
5. More Big Bucks for the Pharmaceuticals
The forecast is estimated to be 25.6 Billion dollars. the largest share coming from India, China and Brazil; I imagine the poorer countries will have to rely on charity, of swap food for drugs.
Surely we know enough to know that “Food is the best medicine and the best medicine is food”
Health Education in All Schools
Why is it so difficult to figure out that the forecast could be cut in half for the next generation, if we wake from ourselfish financial slumber, and introduce Health education in all schools, and probably cut by 15 % if our adult heads are not too hard to absorb and obey what we learn, or not too steeped in old habits to make some change.
It is not to say the plants and herbs are not available, we can even increase our disposable income by growing some around our homes. On my last count, I could see, Moringa, Nooni, Aloe era, vervein, papaya, Stingy Thyme and Spinach a few steps away in my yard.
I am aware we are living in an age of free speech, and we cannot force people to eat healthy, or manufacturers not to produce food that is not good for our health; but not all is lost, people are already becoming more health conscious, and more will follow as education spreads.
Automation and New Farming Opportunities.
Some industries will die, or dwindle, but new opportunities will emerge, there could be a progressive surge in healthy farming as automation makes it devastating impact on jobs, and more and more people become jobless, and unable to afford the steadily rising cost of food and health care.
Who is going to take the lead in preparing the way for the next generation? Creative and or Critical thinking can make the path to success and healthy longevity a realty. The youth cannot just sit back and watch, get involved in building the road to your future and your children’s and grandchildren.
