How much does diet influence disease?
Studies have shown that diet can decrease your risk of heart disease, the number one leading cause of death in this country, by 70%. The best drugs on the market only reduce your risk by 30%.
Being overweight or obese is just as linked to cancer as smoking.
A research study found that being a non-smoker, with a BMI of 25 or less, with a good diet and 1/2 hour of brisk walking a day could prevent 82% of heart attacks, 92% of type two diabetes, and 70% of colon cancer.
So how long you may live, how well, and how healthy you are seems to be greatly influenced by diet. Imagine a world of healthy, vibrant beings. We can have it if we just make better choices.
