The human patient: diabetes, blood pressure, old age

Dear Sir or Madam,

There are many factors that influence our health. Our personal lifestyle plays a major role here, because an unhealthy way of living can cause diseases that bother us until old age. Diabetes, overweight or cardiovascular diseases are some of them. Learn more about diseases of aging and diseases of civilization in our current Topic of the Month.

Have a wonderful day!

Researchers at the Center for Integrated Oncology in Cologne, Germany, have now developed a tool to help physicians with this task.
