For National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) Academician Antonio Miguel L. Dans, no amount of health education or counselling can make people change their lifestyles  to preventnon-communicable diseases (NCD) such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, COPD, and dementia.

Instead, Dr. Dans, a cardiologist and University of the Philippines College of Medicine professor, proposes making changes in the environment in order to make a person change his lifestyle and health status.  Environment refers not only to things around people but also to policies that impact their lives.
