The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), a regional body of the World Health Organization (WHO), has made an ambitious goal—to cut deaths from non-communicable diseases by 25% by the year 2025. In a promising statement of holistic health and prevention, the body said the top 4 causes of death in the Americas are preventable and have the same risk factors.

Addressing the top four killers—cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and chronic respiratory disease—will take a concentrated effort. By identifying the risk factors, the PAHO is signaling their possible effort to prevent the diseases rather than simply mask them with Big Pharma solutions that do little but prolong the agony.

The PAHO identified the following common risk factors among the four diseases:

  • Unhealthy diet
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Excess alcohol
  • Tobacco use

Just how are they going to cut one-fourth of the deaths caused by these diseases in a little more than a decade? The PAHO has set out a list of objectives, most of them focused on prevention.
