Is this Substance Abuse with Potential Vision Loss??
Most of us who currently have jobs don’t feel like we are sedentary or “do nothing,” jobs. As companies have cut back, most people are working harder to keep their jobs and doing the work of what used to be the work of several employees. Those looking for jobs and may have been without jobs for any length of time, may become sedentary and have lower self esteem. Worse than that, studies are showing that Long-Term Sedentary behavior on jobs or lifestyle are increasing links to Cancer, Heart Disease Risk, which can all cause vision loss. The Wall Street Journal reports that, according to a study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, sedentary behaviors, particularly those that require minimal energy expenditure, may increase the risk of developing chronic diseases including colon cancer and heart disease. Increased Substance Use, is driving up Global Cancer, Diabetes Rates and permanent vision loss from poor circulation. “Newly diagnosed cancer cases cost the global economy $300 billion in 2010, as illnesses once believed to be largely confined to wealthier countries took hold in developing nations,” according to economist David E. Bloom, from Harvard’s School of Public Health. He said that an increase in “tobacco use, alcohol intake, [and] obesity,” and a decrease in physical activity in poorer countries are driving up cancer and diabetes rates. According to the world health organization, these account for “60 percent of deaths worldwide.” Sedentary lifestyles and jobs accounted for a twofold risk of colon cancer and a 44% increased risk of rectal cancer, compared with those whose occupations were never sedentary. Notably, those with jobs requiring heavy physical activity had a 44% decreased risk of colon cancer. www.TheEyewearGallery.com
