Top 10 health problems you get after 25

The leading cause of death for people after 25 is cancer. During mid-adulthood, people most often die from cancer and diseases of the cardiovascular system. Some conditions are now becoming a cause of grave concern, with specific ailments affecting the same sex more than the other. For almost the entire life span, the death rate in men is twice as high as in women of the same age. Men, unlike women, often have to work in dangerous conditions. Psychological factors have a particular influence: men care less about their health because in childhood they were taught that they must endure pain.

They are less likely to seek medical help if they are unwell. Also, they may have a significant genetic susceptibility to certain diseases compared with women.
Some middle-aged diseases are not dangerous to humans, but they do not allow them to lead a truly fulfilling life. For example, many people of both sexes at this age have a lot of discomforts caused by arthritis.

Fortunately, most middle-aged people do not suffer from serious illnesses that threaten their lives. The average life expectancy of those who have already reached 45 years of age is approximately 70 years. Over 80% of those over the age of 45, according to forecasts, will generally maintain good health up to the age of 65. Some experts draw our attention to the fact that although the average life expectancy of any part of our planet has still not significantly exceeded 85 years, a significant number of people maintain relatively good health in middle age.

To some extent, the increase in life expectancy can be explained by the fact that people began to monitor their health more. Thanks to proper nutrition, physical education and the ability to regularly receive medical care, many adults can extend the period of active life. Indeed, most experts believe that by regularly exercising, avoiding the effects of stressors and following a diet, middle-aged people can slow down the aging process, preserve the energy of youth, and experience a sense of satisfaction.

Numerous studies have shown that regular exercise before and after the onset of middle age can increase physical abilities and endurance. Some types of exercise, especially aerobic exercises, are specifically designed to improve the performance of the heart and lungs, contribute to supplying the body with additional oxygen.

When older people who were previously sedentary, begin to perform simple exercises, they become noticeably stronger, and their heart and lungs are much more efficient. Regular exercise slows down the process of destruction of muscle tissue and helps to reduce body fat. They can also prevent the damage of joints and help a person with some types of arthritis.

In middle age, which starts after 25 years, the effects of bad habits that have appeared in a person many years ago begin to show up. As a rule, chronic diseases occur long before a doctor detects them. The most serious of them are caused by cigarette smoking. Smoking contributes to cancer (lung, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, colon, stomach, pancreas, cervix, kidneys, urethra, and bladder), diseases of the cardiovascular system and respiratory organs, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, and other diseases.

More than 25% of all deaths of people between the ages of 35 and 64 occur due to smoking. And this is not surprising since it has been established that, besides nicotine, 42 ingredients of cigarette smoke have carcinogenic properties.

Even though over 40 years of awareness-raising campaigns about the dangers of smoking, every fourth adult continues to smoke. The number of smokers has decreased significantly over the past 40 years. However, health authorities are concerned that the percentage of smokers is still extremely high, despite constant attempts to draw public attention to the harm of smoking to health. The fact that cigarettes are always in demand can be partially explained by the effective marketing policy of their manufacturers.

Regular smoking is only one of the bad habits that contribute to the occurrence of chronic diseases. After a particular time, the use of any narcotic substance, including alcohol, affects human health. As a person ages, it becomes more and more difficult for his liver and kidneys to process higher doses of narcotic substances. The effects of cumulative damage to these organs begin to manifest themselves in middle age.

The long-term effects of smoking, alcohol abuse and the use of other drugs are often complicated by other established life habits, such as unhealthy diets or lack of regular exercise. The summary below provides a list of life habits that are integral parts of lifestyle, as well as other factors contributing to the development of chronic diseases at the age after 25.

Dementia and some types of memory loss:
⦁ Malnutrition;
⦁ prolonged illness and bed rest;
⦁ drug use;

Injuries
Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death and disability among adolescents. In 2016, more than 135,000 people died in traffic accidents. Many of the victims were “vulnerable road users,” including pedestrians, cyclists or users of motorized two-wheeled vehicles. In many countries, road safety laws should ensure their comprehensiveness, and measures to comply with these laws should be tightened.

Also, young drivers should receive advice on the rules of safe driving, and laws prohibiting driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs should be strictly followed in all age groups. The limiting blood alcohol level of young drivers should be lower than that of adults. The use of differentiated driving licenses is recommended for novice drivers with zero tolerance for drinking and driving.

Drowning is also one of the top 10 causes of death among people after 25. In 2016, 50,000 people sank, and more than two-thirds of them were men.
Mental health
Depression is the third leading cause of illness and disability among people after 25, and suicide as the cause of death is in third place among people of 25-40 years. Violence, poverty, humiliation and a feeling of being useless can increase the risk of developing mental health problems.
Programs that help strengthen the bond between adolescents and their families are essential. If problems arise, they should be identified and resolved by the actions of competent and caring health workers.
Nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies
Iron deficiency anemia was the second leading cause of death. Iron and folic acid supplements make people’s health better. In areas where intestinal worms such as hookworms are frequent, regular deworming is recommended.

The development of healthy eating habits and exercise at this age is the key to good health. Reducing the sale of foods which are high in saturated fats, trans-fatty acids, free sugars, and salt, as well as providing access to healthy foods and physical activity, is essential for everyone, but especially for people after 25.
Malnutrition and Obesity
Many people enter the age of 25 with malnutrition, which makes them more vulnerable to illness and early death. The number of people suffering from overweight or obesity is increasing in both low and high-income countries.
In 2016, every sixty people in the world were overweight. The incidence varied from region to region from less than 10% in the South-East Asia to more than 30% in the American territories.

Physical activity
Physical activity is essential for promoting people’s health, including improving the state of the respiratory system, cardiovascular, muscular and bone systems, maintaining healthy body mass, and improving psychosocial characteristics. Specialists recommend spending at least 60 minutes of physical activity from moderate to high intensity, including playing games, playing sports, as well as active ways of movement (such as cycling and walking) or physical fitness.

It is estimated that only one out of five people implements these recommendations. In all regions, the world, passive lifestyle is widespread, which is more common among girls.
To increase the level of physical activity, state, public and local bodies should create safe and favorable conditions and opportunities for physical activity for all people
