The average standard of people's health is likely to be lower in the future than it is now. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Although
the medical science has seen a significant development to manage various
life
threatening diseases, still I personally believe that the general health conditions of the people will deteriorate in
forseeable
capable of being anticipated
foreseeable
future due to several reasons.
Firstly
, the sedentary
life style
a manner of living that reflects the person's values and attitudes
lifestyle
is prevalent these days because of the improvements in transport facilities.
Moreover
, the nature of jobs is
also
changing from heavy physical activity and manual work in the past to more desk jobs due to technical advancement in information technology, artificial intelligence and robotics
Additionally
, the outdoor sports activities are
also
being replaced by computer games, social media and video games by the global availability of internet.
Secondly
, change in dietary habits will
also
contribute to the detrimental outcome on general health conditions in the future. Due to very fast
life
, people are diverting from organic homemade food, to the fast food, carbonated drinks and other high carbohydrate and fat rich diet, which is related to an increase in incidence of
ischemic
relating to or affected by ischemia
ischaemic
heart disease, diabetes and hypertension.
Similarly
, a rise in utilization of canned foods containing preservatives is increasing the incidence of gut related cancers because of
presence
Suggestion
the presence
of carcinogens in these preservatives.
Finally
, the rise in environmental pollution
as a result
of rapid industrialization and burning of fossil fuels in the automobiles and locomotives is
also
contributing to the development of allergies and diseases related to respiratory system.
Additionally
, the damage to
Ozone layer
Suggestion
the ozone layer
the Ozone layer
by high carbon content is allowing the dangerous ultraviolet rays which are causing mutations in
human genome
Suggestion
the human genome
leading to the activation of Oncogenes with a resultant rise in several skin related diseases and cancers. To conclude, it is obvious that unless the sedentary
life style
a manner of living that reflects the person's values and attitudes
lifestyle
, poor eating habits and environmental factors are not catered for, the future of human race in terms of health is quite bleak.
