Advanced methods in preventive diagnostics help to detect individual health risks at an earlier stage and minimize them by taking the right counteractive measures. This means plenty of movement, a healthy diet and regular check-ups, although it’s not only people themselves who profit from illness prevention.
The providers of self-help books, care products, dietary supplements, sports courses and relaxation sessions also make a good living from this development. New forms of prevention are integrating themselves into our lives almost without notice. Examples of this include functional clothing that prevent backaches and wearable health devices like neuro-headbands that treat people at home via neurostimulation.
