Languages of publication
Lifestyle diseases are diseases of inherent negative effects of living in a highly developed civilization, and the twenty‑first century is full of negative effects of globalization and urbanization. Environmental pollution, excessive pace of life, chronic fatigue and constant stress have led to many psychiatric disorders (anxiety, depression, phobias), cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension and coronary heart disease, cancer, allergies, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, obesity and diabetes, which are all referred to collectively as the twenty‑first century civilization diseases. Also the use of alcohol, drugs, stimulant drugs or tranquilizers as a means of escape from problems leads to further addictions. To avoid all these conditions one should lead a healthy, active lifestyle while increasing the quality of life for future generations.
