1.1 Increase in the need for health support
There can be no question as to the value of maintaining the quality of life and extending healthy life years.
To realize these goals, it is vital to prevent the onset of lifestyle‐related chronic diseases, the development
of physical conditions requiring long‐term care, and the general deterioration of health. Medical science
and technology to address these issues has progressed dramatically in the last fifty years; even in just the
last twenty‐five or ten years.
