An Aging Populations Toll on Healthcare

An aging population is starting to skew health statistics in a new direction, taking the leading cause of death away from infection towards chronic noncommunicable diseases such as cancer and heart failure. Many of these new diseases can be directly related to obesity and complications resulting thereof such as diabetes and stroke. The population is aging rapidly and the number of people over the age of 65 is estimated to triple by 2050 from 500 million to 1.5 billion.
