Human progress, driven by technical advances, increases wealth and well-being in society. However, socioeconomic and technological progress does not always lead to general well-being of people in society. This study shows some inconsistencies of human progress, technology-driven, on physical and mental health, given by a greater incidence of cancer and suicide in highly developed societies. Overall, then, empirical evidence here seems to reveal that human progress generates positive effects but also leads to some disorders for physical and mental health in the continuous evolution of society over time and space.
