Preface

It is with the greatest enthusiasm that I express my congratulations on the publication “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017),” which has been released on the occasion of the 35th Scientific Congress of the Korean Medical Association (KMA).

“Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017)” is significant because it has organized important health-related issues in a clear manner; this is especially important today, when a flood of imprecise information that can confuse the public surrounds us.

“Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017)” consists of 10 items that Koreans can easily put into practice. The guidelines are grounded in research that has been conducted among Koreans and are closely related to our everyday lives. It would not be an exaggeration to think of the “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017)” as being 10 ‘commandments’ for a healthy lifestyle.

The declaration includes information critical for improving our everyday lives and health. For example, it emphasizes the importance of understanding environmental diseases caused by particulate matter and other emerging infectious diseases, and presents guidelines for quitting smoking, drinking in moderation, eating a balanced diet, being physically active, having a regular sleep schedule, thinking positively, receiving routine health screenings, managing stress, and avoiding excessive exposure to mobile devices.

In the 70 years since the first KMA Congress was held in 1947, the academic society of the KMA, other organizations relevant to the KMA, policy planners, and the public have all participated in KMA Congresses. These meetings have made significant contributions to medical advancements and to communication between the medical field and the public.

It is especially meaningful to announce the “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017)” at the 35th KMA Conference in 2017, as its focus is “Future Medicine and Healthy Aging,” with the goal of establishing a new medical paradigm that advocates for the public interest and fosters social awareness.

I hope that these 10 guidelines for a healthy life do not serve only as a declaration. Instead, I hope that these guidelines are accompanied by continuous interest and effort, so that everyone can practice a healthy lifestyle.

Finally, I would like to express my respect and gratitude to the chair of the Organizing Committee of the 35th Scientific Congress of the KMA, Yoon-seong Lee, and the other committee members and staff members who have diligently invested their time and energy into the presentation of “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017).”

Preface

With the 35th Scientific Congress of the Korean Medical Association (KMA) being held this year, we announce the publication of “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017).”

The KMA Congress is held every 3 years, and physicians from across the nation participate in it. The conference not only suggests future directions in medicine, but also provides Koreans with knowledge and information about living a healthy life. In the current circumstances, in which the domain of medical treatment is both expanding and becoming more specialized, it is the role of the KMA Congress to organize a program that focuses on a shared topic that is of interest both to medical professionals and to the general public.

As we enter the ‘age of longevity,’ Koreans are showing an increased interest in health, because a life that is extended in years without being healthy is not a lifestyle that anyone wishes to pursue. In the age of extended lifespans, chronic diseases such as hypertension or diabetes are considered ‘lifestyle diseases’ that can be prevented and treated through improving everyday habits so that one can enjoy a healthy life in old age.

Just like people put money into pension funds, “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017)” is a ‘health pension’ that the 35th KMA Congress makes available to Koreans to provide them with happy and healthy later years. Having a healthy lifestyle, engaging in regular exercise, getting enough sleep, and having amicable relationships are prerequisites for a healthy life in one’s later years, and these habits need to be practiced from early in life.

The publication “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017),” which was developed this year, contains 10 selected items that are crucial for a healthy life and suggests guidelines that can be put into practice. These lifestyle guidelines are based on scientific evidence, grounded in recent research, and supported with references.

It is my sincere hope that “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017)” will become a guidebook that prepares Koreans for happy and healthy elder years in the age of extended lifespans. These guidelines are expected to be a useful resource for the next generation as well.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 35th KMA Congress, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for all the professionals from specialized fields who have participated in this project and dedicated their time and energy to writing these chapters, which contain accessible information based on scientific evidence, as well as to all the representatives of professional academic societies who served on the advisory board and have provided valuable suggestions and insights. I would also like to express my appreciation to the journalists who played an important role in shaping the development of these guidelines.

Review and Recommendation

It is no exaggeration to say that we are flooded by false health information coming from unidentifiable sources these days. Unverified health-related information, and even false information, is deceitfully fabricated by the press and media, professional organizations, and patient groups, and is circulated through platforms such as social media and Internet forums.

Imprecise or distorted information can cause devastating side effects. It is especially important to take extra precautions regarding the harmful effects of false information regarding health.

When false health information is understood as factual, it both harms health on the individual level and can also have a negative effect on family members, the community, and even the medical field itself. The most important concern is when a patient is deceived by false health information and the trust between the patient and doctor is broken. This can lead to serious problems for public health throughout the nation. The “Anaki” (Korean acronym for ‘raising a child without medicine’) online community has emerged as a recent social issue, and is an example that demonstrates the seriousness of false health information and its implications.

The Korean Medical Association has aptly announced the publication of “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017).” This work contains the ‘10 commandments’ necessary for a healthy lifestyle at a time when it is most needed. There is no need to emphasize how well timed the announcement was.

The dictionary definition of “declaration” is “a formal statement of policies or stance to the public by a nation or organization.” A declaration commonly includes a resolution or statement of volition for accomplishing a certain objective. Considering this fact, “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017)” summarizes the essential health practices that the Korean Medical Association strongly recommends the public to follow.

When I was asked to write a review and recommendation for this book, I carefully reviewed the guidelines and the authors included in this statement based on my career as an experienced reporter in the field of health. I also participated, from the very beginning to the end, in the yearlong production process that included numerous meetings and brainstorming with many professionals.

With this background in mind, I would like to emphasize that “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017)” is the fruit of hard work by medical professionals who wish to continue to build a trustful relationship with the public.

Most credible is the reliability of each and every word in the guidelines, which can be supported by clinical and scientific evidence. I was also informed by the professionals who participated in the writing of the statement that any information that could possibly be considered controversial or insufficiently established was excluded from the guidelines.

Now it is the public’s turn to make a difference. No matter how good the suggestions are, if the Korean public does not accept them and follow through with them, they become useless. I, myself, will start to practice the 10 guidelines with my family. I hope that “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017)” will reestablish the trust between physicians and the public and become the new cornerstone of public health for the nation.

Progress Report and Acknowledgments

The Korean Medical Association (KMA) is South Korea’s largest and most-trusted decision-making organization, made up of Korean physicians with a vision of being “Trustworthy experts for 100 years of healthy life.” The KMA strives to fulfill its vision in accordance with its mission statement: “As professionals, we respect the dignity of human life and value of healthy living, and we practice the art of medicine to the best of our medical abilities and with the highest standard of ethics to safeguard the nation’s right to health and medical treatment.” The KMA provides the latest medical knowledge to its member physicians and represents primary care (including private practices), secondary, and tertiary care institutions, thereby mediating opinions among institutions. The KMA also assists in developing and implementing appropriate and effective medical policies by collaborating with medical administrative agencies such as the Ministry of Health and Welfare, the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, and the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service.     

In the 70 years since the first KMA Congress was held in 1947, academic societies and other organizations relevant to the KMA, as well as policy planners and the public have all participated in KMA Congresses. These meetings have made significant contributions to medical advancements and to communication between the medical field and the public. The KMA Congress is the largest medical conference in Korea, and is held every 3 years. The 35th KMA Congress in 2017 set its focus as “Future Medicine and Healthy Aging,” with the goal of establishing a new medical paradigm that advocates for the public interest and fosters social awareness. 

To achieve this goal, a plan was made to publish “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017),” a preparation team was formed, and the first meeting was held on November 30, 2016. In order to draft the 10 guidelines, Jong-chan Lee, a medical specialist in gastroenterology in the Department of Internal Medicine at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, conducted a systematic literature review through multiple channels: 1) international organizations related to health (WHO, OECD, AHC, etc.); 2) governmental agencies of different countries (United States’ HHS, United Kingdom’s Department of Health, Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, and Germany’s Federal Centre for Health Education); 3) top-ranking medical schools and hospitals (Johns Hopkins, Mayo, UCSF, Stanford, MGH, etc.); 4) Korean medical societies (KMA, the Korean Society of Nephrology, Korean Diabetes Association, etc.); and 5) other well-known physicians’ blogs and similar online resources.

This review indicated that organizations rarely proposed comprehensive health guidelines on a group/organizational/institutional level and that the few proposals containing recommendations divided into items were limited to nutrition-based or disease-specific information such as cancer/diabetes prevention. With these results, the preparation team wrote the first draft, which contained 12 items, as the first step in developing a comprehensive and practical declaration for the entire public. On January 12, 2017, the preparation team held their second meeting, integrated additional research data, and finalized the “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017).” These guidelines are: 1) quitting smoking, 2) drinking in moderation, 3) eating a balanced diet, 4) being physically active, 5) having a regular sleep schedule, 6) thinking positively, 7) receiving routine health screenings and immunizations, 8) managing stress, 9) paying attention to particulate matter and emerging infectious diseases, and 10) avoiding excessive exposure to mobile devices.

The preparation team held their third meeting on February 28, 2017 and decided to develop slogans representing the 10 guidelines (1 slogan for each guideline) and a set of best practices to follow (3 practices per guideline). With the help of KBS News medical correspondent Kwang Shik Park, the team adopted 3 principles to use for selecting a total of 40 sentences for the slogans and practices to follow: first, consider current conditions in Korea; second, use easy and simple language; and third, give assurance to the people that each guideline is an ‘all-in-one’ source of information. During the fourth 10 guidelines preparation team meeting held on March 20, 2017, a total of 40 sentences for slogans representing the 10 guidelines (1 slogan for each guideline) and a set of practices to follow (3 per guideline) were selected, and a professional copywriter revised the language to make it easily understandable to the general public. Furthermore, rather than issuing “Ten guidelines for a healthy life: Korean Medical Association statement (2017)” as a one-time-only declaration, the team decided to publish it in the format of a book to help the general public continue practicing healthy living at all ages.

The content of the book goes beyond a simple list of 40 sentences; it includes details on each principle and steps to take, and contains references; thus, it meets both the objectives of being a book that is accessible to the general public and of having scholarly value. During the fifth meeting on April 28, 2017, Nayoung Kim, Bossng Kang, and Tae Won Min (a reporter for the Kukmin Daily Newspaper) selected the final 40 sentences from the 160 sentences drafted by the professional copywriter and medical specialist Jong-chan Lee. Then, the authors who were to write each guideline were notified of the final 40 sentences. The authors revised the 4 sentences corresponding to each guideline, and then they started to write the content in detail. Finally, the cover was chosen and the content for each guideline was circulated among many professionals in the field, academic societies, and related organizations for further revisions before the final publication.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to Professor Hee Man Kim of Yonsei University Wonju College of Medicine, Wonju Severance Christian Hospital, who generously devoted his time despite his many obligations and helped edit and review all the manuscripts, discovered contradictory content, and cross-checked the evidence for each sentence. We would also like to thank Secretary General Won-Chul Lee, who has given us continuous strong support. We also appreciate Professor Jun Soo Kwon for willingly drafting 4 of the 10 guidelines, Yonhapnews Agency reporter Kilwon Kim for initially providing the idea and setting up the framework for this project, Kukmin Daily Newspaper reporter Tae Won Min for the extensive help in drafting the 40 sentences, and Professor Bossng Kang, who assisted us greatly in drafting the guidelines for smoking and alcohol cessation.

Finally, we would like to express our sincerest gratitude to all the authors who participated in writing the 10 guidelines; this project was a great opportunity to present Korea’s advanced level of medical science and its dedication to society. Furthermore, we believe that a revised edition of the book with content updated based on the latest medical research will be published before the next KMA Congress, which will be held in another 3 years, in order to continuously provide the general public with practical guidelines. We hope that active assistance from the KMA will help make this book readily available to more people to assist them in practicing a healthy lifestyle.
