How To Choose a Long and Healthy Life Free Of Disease, Infirmity, and Disability Instead

Every year, almost 900,000 Americans die prematurely from heart disease, stroke, and cancer AND 20% to 40% of these deaths are preventable

This is because humans have become more sedentary and less active in the 21st century. Children don't play outdoors anymore. Kids and adults stare at their cell phones for hours a day, watching reality television while choking down unhealthy junk and processed food

In fact, more often than not, it is lifestyle choices that dictate these conditions

If you need hard facts and figures to illustrate exactly how poor lifestyle decisions negatively affect your health, take a look at some of these sobering statistics.

  • 1 in 3 adults in the US and the UK is overweight or obese, and childhood obesity, something that virtually did not exist before the 1970s, is considered a health epidemic by WHO, the CDC and other global health authorities
  • In the United States alone, more than 1.6 million cases of cancer are diagnosed each year, and 600,000 will die annually from some type of cancer, most important diet is a key risk factor for several cancers. (National Cancer Institute)
