Globalsurance Releases New Article on Health Concerns in China
Date:11/5/2013

(PRWEB) November 05, 2013

Health insurance distributor Globalsurance has recently published a new article on its blog titled, “China's New Health Care Concerns”, an article which looks at the different health problems Chinese citizens are facing despite the standard of living continuing to improve.

The article explains that while developing countries are more susceptible to preventable, treatable infections like malaria and tuberculosis, developed countries are also susceptible to many diseases of their own.

China, as the article explains, has been named one of the world's fastest growing economies over the last few decades. The country now exports more goods than any other nation, and with that industrial and financial growth has come huge improvements in individual wealth and standards of living. However, China’s development has also brought new health care concerns – the kind of concerns that affect a wealthier and not necessarily healthier populace: cancer, diabetes, and other lifestyle-related diseases.

The Globalsurance article explains that millions of people in the country are now suffering from type 2 diabetes. The sudden increase in wealth has lead to changes in the Chinese diet. Instead of eating meals based around rice, vegetables and a bit of meat, many families in China are now consuming more Western-style foods, including hamburgers, carb-rich sandwiches and high-sodium snacks.

A number of other health concerns are examined in the article as well. Air pollution is a major concern as the huge amounts of industrialization and a lack of environmental protections have caused China to have some of the worst air quality in the world. HIV and AIDS are also becoming more prevalent, especially with men over 60 years old.

The article looks at a variety of different sources such as the Journal of the American Medical Association, a study from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and a study from the Health Effects Institute of Boston.
