Different writers have been arguing about the existent, epidemiology and public health issues in manmade diseases. It is believed that manmade diseases affect approximately one per cent of the world’s population, and is the most commonly misdiagnose medical condition in the world today. The two most important and serious problems facing patient with manmade diseases are the ability to remember the “time” and the “place” they contracted the disease, which was traced back to certain chemicals, including benzene, beryllium, asbestos, vinyl chloride, and arsenic are known human carcinogens found in patient’s body to cause cancer in humans. Therefore, a person's risk of developing cancer depends on how much, how long, how often, where, and when they are exposed to these chemicals.
Manmade diseases could disguise their signs and symptoms, which could take between up to 15 years to diagnose. The most worrying concern is that by the time the illness was finally diagnosed, the patient would probably have died or living in a state of gravely and seriously unwell. In addition, even when the patient have successfully raise legal action against the defendant, the patient often does not live to the end of litigation because the legal battle normally take a long time to complete. The purpose of this article is to highlight the rising problems of manmade disease to healthcare professionals and the need to find a solution to deal with them.
Despite advances in medical practice in the 21st Century, manmade diseases still cause serious concern in society in general. It was identified that manmade diseases are reflections of the major forces driving social, industrialisation, economic, cultural and dynamic change in the World, including globalisation and increasing population with varying policies, which are keeping most of the sick people indefinitely out of employment and better lifestyle until the patient’s end of life. Therefore attention needs to be paid on the impact that manmade diseases place in the community.
