SEEDi1.0-3.0 strategies for major noncommunicable diseases in China

The purpose of this article is to briefly introduce the status and challenges of major noncommunicable diseases (mNCDs), which include cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer, as well as related risk factors, such as environmental pollution, smoking, obesity and sleep disorders. “S-E-E-D” rules or the strategies of “S-E-E-D” intervention (SEEDi) consist of four core healthy elements: sleep, emotion, exercise and diet. The history of SEEDi1.0–3.0 is also introduced, which includes versions 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and 3.0 of the program. These guidelines are suitable for prevention and control of mNCDs. Not only the “Healthy China” initiated in China’s “13th Five-year Plan,” but also the “Healthy World” philosophy needs SEEDi1.0–3.0 strategies for control of mNCDs.

Keywords: noncommunicable diseases; cardiovascular disease; diabetes mellitus; cancer; lifestyle
