Welcome to the Online Edition of Health Spectrum Magagjne. Health Spectrum is a monthly health magazine published from New Delhi, Capital of India.
As you know, our health, which is an invaluable asset of our life, is determined and affected by an array of diverse factors — from the genes that we inherit from our parents to the climate we live in and the work we do. But there is a growing body of scientific evidence that shows our lifestyles play a huge part in how healthy we are. From what we eat and drink, to how much exercise we do, and whether we smoke or take drugs, every single factor is impacting our health, not only in terms of life expectancy but also in terms of our ability to live without experiencing chronic diseases
In India, the situation is absolutely different because Indians are discarding their centuries-old lifestyle and traditional food and recklessly adopting a western life and junk food.
Due to this fast-changing scenario, India is witnessing an alarming spurt in several lifestyle diseases. The disturbing fact that starkly stares in our face is that the country accounts for the highest number of diabetes cases and some other health problems like cancer and cardiovascular diseases. It is hardly surprising that India has become the world capital of several life-threatening ailments.
There are a number of factors contributing to the dismal health scenario in our country. Indians are genetically predisposed to a numbers of diseases, particularly cardiovascular problems, but vast disparities in the healthcare delivery and lack of awareness about medical facilities among the general public have largely contributed to it. It is imperative to generate mass awareness about the symptoms, repercussions, complications and treatment of a disease. Most of the time, ignorance about a disease proves fatal.
India may be witnessing an Information Revolution boom with the emergence of hundreds of TV Channels, newspapers and websites, but it is ironical that majority of people still have no access to quality and authentic health information. Even in the 21st century, people depend on hearsay or primitive health techniques.
It is precisely because of this reason that we, a small but dedicated team of health communicators, have decided to bring out “Health Spectrum”, with the avowed objective of disseminating scientifically proven health information among the general public. It is one baby step in that direction but our ultimate objective is to position the magazine as a bridge between Health Experts/Doctors/Researchers/ Health providers and the general public. We hope that it will become a medium of communication between them.
As a fledgling health magazine in India, we want to be a platform to promote health awareness and offer an avenue for meaningful debates on challenges and problems in the healthcare sector. We also want to empower our readers to lead a happy, healthy and disease-free life. It goes without saying that there cannot be any substitute for a robust health, which is a prerequisite for both physical and mental well being. We have an unwavering goal to meet this objective through the magazine, which can be a trusted friend and counsellor in all aspects of their lives.
The articles for the magazines and this website are all written by people who are engaged in providing healthcare to the public. They have freely shared their viewpoints with lots of gusto and passion. I encourage you to do the same. However,
we want to clarify that Health Spectrum is a platform for different shades ofopinions, and many writers may not may not be conducting clinical trials or research.
As such, we do not confirm statements made by any author. The magazine insists that readers should consult a medical doctor prior to following any opinion or advice or using any product or service published in the magazine.
We appreciate your support and are delighted to have you as a reader of the magazine. We earnestly hope that you will constantly provide guidance and support to this initiative through a sustained readership.
We will look forward to your suggestions and feedbacks for improving the magazine. After all, it is your magazine. We will surely publish the worthwhile comments from our readers.With warmest thanks,
Vinod Kumar, Editor
