Obesity Epidemic

Amazing! How can this be happening? People around the developed world and especially here in the USA are digging their graves with their teeth and thinking it is part of getting old. But how can that be since younger and younger people are being diagnosed with heat disease, type-II diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure. Sickness is "NOT" part of getting old and "CAN" be reversed.

According to a study led by the John Hopkins University research department, by 2020 about 75% of all Americans will be obese, and by 2030 about 86% will be if the trends stay the same.

By 2015 they have estimated that health-care costs in the United States related to overweight-related issues is forecasted to rise 70%.

The lifespan of someone that is obese is 8-10 years less, which is the same as that of a smoker.

The cause of this, and the rise of other (life-style) diseases such as: heart-disease, diabetes, hypertension, has been related to the decrease in physical activity and the increase consumption of processed foods which are high in fat, sugar, flavor enhancers (excitotoxins), which are making foods addictive.

You don't have to be part of these statistics, by education and lifestyle adjustments you can prevent yourself from being part of these staggering and startling statistics. You can live longer and with an excellent quality of life. Also, avoid the great expense of doctor and hospital bills and have more time with family and loved ones.
