Will people's health be worse in the future?

Hii could you give me opinions on this essay? thanks!

The average standard of people’s health is likely to be lower in the future than it is now.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?


It has been asserted nowadays that in the future people's health could witness a decrease compared to its present parameters. Personally, I strongly disagree with this view. Nonetheless, this essay will discuss both sides, using both academical examples.

On the one hand, the ever-growing use of experimental cures and treatments, which have lately been conducted in most hospitalization centres, could lead us to believe that there are no reasons to think that people's health is likely to deteriorate soon. Governments and benefactors all over the world are known to fund improvements for research centres, in order to find a cure for rare diseases, such as lyme and lupus, and in the fight against the coronavirus in these two previous years, scientists and doctors' experiments have led to successful results, thanks to the large amount of time and money invested on it. This can be used as an example to explain how our heath is efficiently handled by people, who are constantly studying to ameliorate our fairly fragile immune system.

On the other hand, pollution and climate changes play pivotal roles in the increasing cases of all kinds of cancers and tumours, resulting in a pejoration of our general health. The index of greenhouse gases emissions is dangerously high in the latest years and the contamination of air and food is the greatest aggravating factor for these mortal diseases. For instance, outputs carried out by Oxford University in 2020, shows us how, in the next 10 years, we will conclusively be affected by more pandemics and rare diseases, due to air pollution and the poorly conditions of our planet.

Having manifested the aforementioned points of view and examples, it can be recapitulated that in my opinion, albeit the increasing environmental pollution and the issues resulted from it, doctors and scientist are outrightly engaged in improving our conditions and we will undergo promising experimental treatments to better recover from maladies.
