'STOP' Non-communicable Chronic Diseases (NCDs)

  • 70% of deaths and 75% of medical expenses in the United States result from lifestyle behaviors (Sep '12 NEJM). 
  • An estimated $47 trillion is required globally to deal with NCDs by 2030 (Sep 2011, UN).
  • 68% of adult Americans are obese. The adult obesity rates have doubled, while childhood rates have tripled from 1980 to 2010.
  • The only cost-effective solution to this complex global problem, a result of several factors, lies increased activity and healthy diet.
  • We educate communities on the preventable link between unhealthy lifestyles and NCDs. We support all other individuals and organizations in their endeavors to deal with this global pandemic.
