Statistically speaking, you're more likely to be sick than healthy these days. Nearly 70 percent of adults in the US take at least one prescription drug for a chronic or other medical condition, with antibiotics, antidepressants and narcotic painkillers topping the list.
One in 5 deaths in the US is linked to obesity, and diabetes has increased over 300 percent in just 15 years. All told, nearly one-third of Americans have either prediabetes or some form of diabetes, which predisposes them to a whole host of other serious health conditions and chronic diseases.
More than half a million Americans also die from Alzheimer's disease each year, making it the third leading cause of death in the US, right behind heart disease and cancer.
Importantly, ALL of these conditions have been scientifically linked to poor lifestyle choices and alterations in the modern diet. So is there a way out of this proverbial mouse trap? I believe there is.
