This Could Save Your Life | Preventing The Most Common Diseases of The Human Body
I just felt like sharing this video from a live presentation done by Dr. Greger’s a few years ago. The information presented covers vital topics that could prevent grave illnesses and diseases that could’ve been easily prevented. He presents cutting-edge research on how a healthy diet can affect some of our most common medical conditions.
Chronic diseases —including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer— account for some of the most common health problems in the United States, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Yet many of these chronic diseases are preventable, as they’re linked to poor diet and lifestyle choices including tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, and inadequate physical activity
The CDC reports some sobering statistics about Americans:
☢ Chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability.
☢ 70% of annual deaths are due to chronic diseases.
☢ These preventable conditions not only compromise quality of life, they add to rising health care costs—75% of our health care dollars are devoted to treat these diseases.
☢ Among adults ages 20 to 74, diabetes remains the leading cause of kidney failure, blindness, and non-traumatic lower-extremity amputations.
The good news is that you have the power to help prevent chronic disease, as making positive diet and lifestyle changes can help reduce risk. Eating healthy foods, getting enough exercise, and refraining from tobacco and excessive alcohol use confer numerous health benefits.
