Mature Market Experts Stat of The Day: Multiple Chronic Diseases On The Rise

Mature Market experts: more mature market news and stats more often: Multiple Chronic Diseases On The Rise- “The percentage of mature market Americans with three or more chronic illnesses rose even more sharply.

It jumped from 13 percent in 1996 to 22 percent in 2005 for ages 45 to 64, to 45 percent for ages 65 to 79, and rose from 38 percent to 54 percent for those 80 and older. Among all ages, it went from 7 percent in 1996 to 13 percent in 2005.”

Note: Why do I believe that chronic diseases are on the rise? Because our lifestyles are becoming more unhealthly EVERY day and because we practice reactive medicine rather than preventive. Or as my TR Mann Consulting teammate Dr. Gary Applebaum says, “in the U.S. we practice sick care.”
