Taking Personal Responsibility for Your Health |

"Most deaths in the United States are preventable, and related to nutrition. According to the most rigorous analysis of risk factors ever published—the Global Burden of Disease Study, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation—the number one cause of death in the United States, and the number one cause of disability, is our diet, which has bumped tobacco smoking to number two. Smoking now only kills a half million Americans every year, whereas our diet kills hundreds of thousands more." I try not to bombard friends on Facebook with my opinions or beliefs about making personal choices. But when it comes to nutrition, I am passionate about sharing what I've learned because we're talking about information that can make or break the health and well-being of our families, our loved ones. When it comes to life and death decisions about what we consume on a daily basis, why are we so interested in peoples' opinions (of this fad diet or the next) -- or cling to our own? Shouldn't we demand the best available evidence? if anyone is seeking a reliable source for the facts on food, separates itself from most other sites because they don't accept any money from groups and they give you the source, the data, the graphs and let you make up your own mind. They don't tell you what to eat. But I can tell you that after reviewing the facts, I could not continue eating the way I believed was healthy 6-years ago. #showmethescience #nutritionfacts #lifestyleintervention
If that’s all a healthy plant-based diet could do—reverse the #1 killer of men and women—shouldn’t that be the default diet, until proven otherwise?...
