  Starting from the simple question: What do we do when we have a headache? We better hydrate ourselves, try to eliminate the potential factors that generated it, or skip immediately and swallow a drug, we will see that the One Health approach may respond best, as this new concept is based on the primary prophylaxis of the human and animal disease by studying, monitoring and disseminating information on global pathology, within the environment-plant-animal-human chain.

"It is easier for patients to take a pill than to make lifestyle changes"

  For example, heart disease is responsible for more than 600,000 deaths in the U.S. every year, becoming the leading cause of death in the country. Given this, it is not surprising that among the most common drugs prescribed in the U.S. there are also those used to treat conditions associated with heart disease, such as statins - used to lower cholesterol. According to the CDC, the use of cholesterol lowering drugs is now six times higher than in 1988 - 1994.
