Cultural change, stress and epidemiological transition in Bangladesh: an anthropological study of chronic degenerative disorders (diabetes and hypertension) among rural and urban populations

Cultural change, stress and epidemiological transition in Bangladesh: an anthropological study of chronic degenerative disorders (diabetes and hypertension) among rural and urban populations

Dissertation Abstracts International, A Humanities and Social Sciences 48(10): p.2666

Degenerative disorders of diabetes and hypertension among modernizing populations of Bangladesh were examined by using the retrospective approach of anthropological epidemiology. The investigation revealed that the cultural transition from traditional to urbanized lifestyles increased the risk of such diseases. Major changes in life provoking attempts to adapt, tended to generate alterations in the functioning of the metabolic and circulatory systems.
