The expected lifespan of our nation is 76 years; however, the expected healthy lifespan is ten to fifteen years or even twenty years shorter. In 2013, the national population over 60 years old is 202,000,000 people. China’s aging of population is featured by a situation of long but unhealthy life, aging before getting better off. Nowadays, people’s need for health have been expanded to healthy long life, beauty and anti-aging, which has formed a broad market of the future health industry. A good ecological environment, living habit and healthy service system are of vital importance to the living and healthy life of human beings.

Whiling diagnosing patients, we must popularize our scientific health knowledge into the public.
