Wellness We Care, Thailand
The Company has set up a Wellness We Care Center in MuakLek, Thailand for disease reversal and good health through improved Lifestyle.
Every hour 43 Thai people die from non-communicable diseases (NCDs), causing an estimate of 380,000 deaths or 76% of all deaths each year. The rise in NCDs does not only increase financial, physical and mental costs in families, but it also extends beyond the people who are directly affected. Costly chronic diseases also lead to a decline in the working-age population of the labor force, which reduces productivity and results in the decrease of GDP per capita growth. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), NCDs pose a real and significant threat to Thailand, with a huge economic burden costing Thai society an estimated THB 280 billion in 2013. In 2009, the economic cost of NCDs was an estimated THB 198,512 million, or 2.2% of GDP, due to premature deaths and loss of productivity among the country’s work force. With serious ailments, many physical and emotional losses may come before the loss of life itself. One of the major behavioral risk factors of NCDs is an unhealthy diet. People are adopting a more sedentary lifestyle which contribute to a steady increase in long-term health problems and double the risk of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and obesity. Mega Lifesciences goal is to help people stay healthy as long as they live. We believe in building holistic health in communities we live and work in, as healthy population means happiness and prosperity to Individual, family, society and nation.
Aligned to this goal Mega has built The Wellness We Care Center, located at AmphurMuakLek, Saraburi, to promote to common people and healthcare providers around the work, scientifically proven method of preventing and reversing chronic diseases through food and lifestyle changes. The foremost objective of Wellness We Care is to disseminate scientific knowledge and skills to people, which will help them to take charge of their own health. By teaching people about lifestyle changes, the center helps them develop the skills necessary for prevention and reversal of chronic and lifestyle diseases.
