Chronic Illness is up to 80% Completely Preventable
Did you know… Here’s a little-known fact:
There’s up to 80% chance that one’s chronic illness is completely preventable.
According to the California Department of Public Health, up to 80 percent of cardiovascular disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and over 30 percent of cancers could be prevented by eliminating tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, and the harmful use of alcohol.
Most of these recommendations are obvious in how it can be implemented – don’t smoke, don’t drink and start moving around – but eliminating an “unhealthy diet” likely requires some guidance for most people.
What is a Healthy Diet?
One way of determining whether a food is “unhealthy” is by considering whether the contents of the food you consume have nutritional value beyond calories.
Lack of nutrients in the food you eat may cause health problems.
For example, magnesium is an essential mineral required for making nitric oxide, a potent vasodilator. So, if you have high blood pressure, it may be partly caused by a simple magnesium deficiency. Low Vitamin D levels are also associated with high blood pressure.
According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, over 80% of the population in the USA is at risk for select nutritional inadequacies, especially vitamins A, E, C, and magnesium.²
