C) Non-communicable diseases

Non-Communicable diseasesare non-transferable. In simple words, non-communicable diseases are the diseases that cannot be spread from person to person through physical contact or close proximity to each other. Almost all mental diseases are non-communicable. Diseases like strokes, blood pressure, skin cancer etc are all non-communicable diseases. Non-communicable diseases are responsible for almost 70% of deaths in the world. That is an impressive number!

(C) Noncommunicable Diseases

If a disease does not spread from person to person, it is called a non-communicable disease. These diseases are often related to genetic factors within the person, and so they are not contagious. A few examples of non-communicable diseases include:

• Alzheimer’s

• Asthma

• Cataracts

• Kidney disease

• Lung disease

• Diabetes

• Fibromyalgia

Heart disease

• Hypertension (high blood pressure)

• Osteoporosis

• All types of cancer

• As well as other diseases

Many non-communicable diseases are also chronic diseases, which means they will affect a person for the rest of their life. If you know someone with a non-communicable disease, then you don’t have to worry about that condition spreading to you or others around the person. However, if you have a relative suffering from a chronic illness, it’s important to learn if you are also at an increased risk for that disease.
