How to save 37 million premature deaths?

Neolife medical management


In the majority of cases, dying prematurely could be prevented.

Premature death is scientifically defined as that which occurs between 30 and 70 years of age, i.e. before reaching the worldwide average life expectancy, which is 68 for men and 73 for women. 85% of deaths in the Western world and 65% in developing countries are due to non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer or chronic lung disease.

Communicable infectious diseases, such as malaria, tuberculosis and AIDS are of significant importance, however all of them together kill fewer individuals worldwide than cancer.

A major study published this year in The Lancet (1) has presented a mathematical model demonstrating how to prevent 25% of premature deaths worldwide within 15 years (between 2010 and 2025); acting on just 6 risk factors would save no less than 37 million lives!

According to the study, the risk factors are:

  • Tobacco
  • Alcohol
  • Salt
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Blood glucose and type 2 diabetes

Preventive actions on a few risk factors can have major effects on society, and when these are then also tailored to each individual in order to address additional risk factors through an Age Management program, the objective effect on our health, life expectancy and quality of life is unquestionable.

The reason is simple and scientifically proven. If you start eating better, exercising regularly, following good lifestyle habits – which includes quitting smoking and any other toxic substances – and you start taking supplements for the micronutrients in which you are deficient, and you balance the hormones of the endocrine system, the effects on your body will soon become apparent.

Each action has a physiological effect and adding all of the actions together produces the final result. For example, if you lower the glycemic index of the foods in your diet, you will undoubtedly lose fatty tissue; in addition, your body’s general level of inflammation will improve and you will feel lighter and more energetic. If you take Vitamin D supplements, you don’t feel any special effect in particular, but maintaining our Vitamin D plasma levels at an optimal value of above 50 ng/mL has been shown to help prevent against many diseases. If you are a 55-year-old man and you restore your free testosterone plasma levels to their optimal levels, you will see remarkable improvements in your libido, strength, body composition and vitality, as well as helping to prevent against many diseases…
