Some Big Statements on Diet

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.
