What Will Be the Biggest Health Concerns in the U.S. in 2030?
Life expectancy has been on the rise over the past several generations, but the road to longevity does have some hurdles with preventable, chronic conditions that could get worse without widespread lifestyle changes. This video from the CDC explains that cancer is poised to surpass heart disease as the leading cause of death in the United States. While this is promising for the preventive measures that have been taken in managing heart disease, it shows that there is an aging population suffering from fatal cancers. Suicide among the elderly will become a bigger concern as well with the prevalence of depression and dementia among these populations.
