There are 74 non-communicable diseases like heart disease, cancer and diabetes in the world. Diseases transmitted from one generation to another are more dangerous than infectious diseases, WHO said. In all, 41 million people die each year due to non-communicable diseases. It is known that 17 million of them are under the age of 70 years. It has been found that heart diseases, cancer, diabetes and respiratory diseases have overcome infectious diseases.
