WHO report estimates that Non-communicable diseases account for 60 lakh deaths i.e. 63% of all deaths. There are various factors which increase the risk of the onset and progression of Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs) - to name a few: genetics, lifestyle/behavior, environment, age, physiology, metabolism, etc. It is imperative to note that genetics is one of the key non-modifiable risk factors. Your genetics along with other factors determines your health. On the other hand, modifiable risk factors like lifestyle or behavior especially pertaining to nutrition or food habits and fitness levels helps in controlling diseases. Interestingly the modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors, i.e. lifestyle and genetics, interact to yield numerous health outcomes. A genetic risk in combination with an unfavorable lifestyle can increase the risk of NCD for an individual. In contrast, a favorable lifestyle can attenuate the genetic risk of NCDs.
