The growing global burden of non-communicable diseases around the world is a public health and politic problem. Despite the strong evidence, the preventability of its causes has been inadequate. Globalization is an important determinant of non-communicable disease epidemics since it has direct effects on risks to populations and indirect effects on national economies and health systems. Today, non-communicable chronic diseases are sweeping the entire globe. There is an increasing trend in developing countries, where the demographic and socio-economic transition imposes more constraints on dealing with the double burden of infectious and non-infectious diseases in a poor environment, characterized by ill-health systems. It is predicted that, by 2020, non-communicable chronic diseases will cause seven out of every ten deaths in developing countries. Among non-communicable chronic diseases, special attention is devoted to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and chronic pulmonary disease, because 63% of all deaths worldwide currently stem from non-communicable chronic disease – chiefly cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes. The burden of these conditions affects countries worldwide but with a growing trend in developing countries. Moreover, recent investigations show that many of these diseases share common pathophysiological mechanisms and are, at least in part, different and / or similar molecular alterations.
