Protect what is precious!

We know, tears roll down your eyes looking at your baby’s discomfort during or post vaccination, but you’re contented as you’re giving your baby a lifetime of smiles by offering protection against many serious childhood illnesses. Vaccination has greatly reduced the burden of infectious diseases and has increased life-expectancy to a greater extent.

Having said that, do you know that even after vaccination, your baby is still extremely vulnerable to many diseases on which you have no control if you are not ready for it in due time? “Most of the non-communicable diseases, e.g., diabetes or heart disease, affect the person in the productive years. Also, they put immense pressure on public health expenditure as in most cases the treatment costs are higher compared to communicable diseases,” says Dr. K. Srinath Reddy, President of the Public Health Foundation of India. By vaccination you have protected your child from many infectious diseases, but what if you or your child becomes a victim of lifestyle diseases or any degenerative illnesses?

 

According to health experts, sedentary lifestyle and diet patterns, besides genetic susceptibility and a weak immune system are the main causes of lifestyle diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, hypertension and stroke.Earlier it was thought that lifestyle diseases are limited to urban population, however, studies have shown that it has now spread to rural and tribal areas as well. The national averages for hypertension and diabetes are 5.59% and 6.19%, respectively, as determined by the combined opportunistic screening by the National Programme for Prevention and Control of Cancer, Diabetes, CVD and Stroke (NPCDCS).

Age-related neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease or fateful burn or spinal cord injury can strike anyone. Many people forfeit the hope of a healthy life hereafter as they are still unaware of breakthrough therapies that can radically change their life.Thanks to medical science for discovering Stem Cell preservation that has the potential of making cells and tissues for regenerative treatments including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and even arthritis. Investing in Stem Cell preservation, whether from umbilical cord or dental pulp, is like vesting in your own cells (should you need it in future) to eliminate the need of anti-rejection drugs and the risk of contracting infection from another donor. Take a step today, so that your loved ones retain their smile forever!
