World Health Day is celebrated on the 7th of April. It is celebrated to attract attention to specific health topics and this year the World Health Organization is focused on the urgent action needed to keep our planet and our people healthy. Every year more people are affected by cancer, asthma, and heart diseases due to the polluted air we breathe and unhealthy habits due to poorer processed foods.
We are constantly exposed to fossil fuels that causes cancers and asthma and filling our bodies with fast foods or unhealthy foods that lead to heart diseases. To move forward in a healthier manner, we need to GO GREEN. That is the focus of the World Health Organization this year. Let’s improve our environment that we can have a healthier future.
On the audiology front, hearing aid batteries are soon something of the past since rechargeable technology has made leaps and bounds of progress – so no more disposing of batteries!
FUN FACT: World Health Day is on the 7th of April annually because that is the day the World Health Organization was found in 1948.
