In this episode of Vedique Wellness, James Maskell, a health economist and author of the ‘Evolution of Medicine’ talks about the need for communities in the current era.
Data shows that the biggest root cause of the chronic illness is not nutrition, not exercise, not smoking or drinking, but loneliness. Loneliness is the biggest cause of mortality and diseases and in the age of pandemics, we need to ensure that mental health and loneliness are thwarted.
Worldwide, the effect of loneliness is severe amongst younger generations.
The community has fallen apart in western civilizations with the onset of the Technological revolution. Even Indian is moving towards a culture where everyone is “Helplessly independent” with the onslaught of Social Media, eCommerce, and tech-enabled services.
