China has been transformed in recent decades by an economic miracle that has seen rapid industrialisation and the transfer of hundreds of millions of people from the countryside to towns and cities.
This enormous change has lifted multitudes out of poverty and given them a better standard of living than they enjoyed in rural areas. But along with higher wages and urban living have come “western” diseases such as cancer linked to very high rates of smoking, and diabetes and heart disease thanks to a richer diet, lack of exercise and high blood pressure.
There’s an adjustment that needs to be made there. How many o those diseases of richness are noted simply because the folk are richer and therefore not dead already?
At the very minimum until you age adjust the figures you’ve no idea, do you?
