A serious illness, like most calamities, often arrives unannounced. And much like a natural disaster, takes a grievous toll: physical, emotional and financial. Worse, the diseases that were often encountered typically after 50 years of age, have now begun to strike as early as in one’s 30s and 40s, given the stressful and unhealthy lifestyles. According to the latest India Fit report from GOQii, a fitness technology platform, one in three people above the age of 30 suffers from a lifestyle disease, be it cardiac issues, diabetes or high cholesterol, which often escalate to serious health issues. A government report suggests there are more than three crore heart patients, while the World Life Expectancy data shows heart ailments, lung diseases and strokes to be the leading causes of death in India. The National Cancer Registry Programme of the Indian Council of Medical Research claims there were nearly 38 lakh Indians suffering from cancer in 2012-14.

There are no problems with walking and running, but it completely ignored a week’s skiiing, despite several hairy black runs sending the pulse racing. Most annoying of all was the fact that it captured the low-intensity runs, or the walks around the town, but not the lung-bursting downhill runs. The lesson? Skiing is not the Alta HRs forte. In addition, the lack of integrated GPS means you should treat the distances travelled as more of a guide than gospel. Without GPS data to pinpoint your position, it’s only ever going to be an estimate. Still, if you do crave accurate distance data, then the Fitbit app lets you get the best of both worlds: you can piggyback off your phone’s GPS and combine that with the heart-rate data from the Alta HR. The Alta HR’s general accuracy in other areas is surprisingly good, though. Comparing the heart rate data to a MyZone MZ-3 chest belt showed the the Alta HR’s average heart rate was only 5-6% off.

Early detection is another critical priority, and a recent breakthrough in the form of a simple blood test has made lung cancer detectable with 92 percent accuracy . Researchers have also developed a way to detect esophageal cancer using a sponge on a string . Prevention is also on the medical agenda. Researchers have also discovered how to use CRISPR to target the “command center” of cancer in mice; this technique has been proven to shrink aggressive tumors in mice, who survived at an astonishing rate of 100 percent. Scientists have also been working to create a personalized cancer vaccine . While there's not yet any one best way to prevent, detect, or treat cancer, it's safe to say that genomics will continue to play a role in the best practices for fighting the disease. The change in focus away from the location of tumors and toward underlying genetics is absolutely essential to success.
