Statistically, 20% of people have tinnitus, which is in fact not a condition, but a symptom of another initial cause such as an injury to the ear, a disorder in the circulatory system or hearing loss due to aging.

Intussusception (invagination)

Intussusception is a rare but serious disorder in which part of the intestine — either the small intestine or colon — slides into another part of the intestine.

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

The Lancet, 380/9838 Published: 2012-07-21

Strong evidence shows that physical inactivity increases the risk of many adverse health conditions, including major non-communicable diseases such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancers, and shortens life expectancy.

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource

The Lancet, doi:10.1016 Published: 2012-07-23

The emergence and spread of high levels of HIV-1 drug resistance in resource-limited settings where combination antiretroviral treatment has been scaled up could compromise the effectiveness of national HIV treatment programmes.
