Can you eat your way to good health? If you could, would you?
Whether you’re into health and fitness, a real couch potato, or somewhere in between; there’s something to be said for what’s happening to our bodies because of what, and how we are eating.

We should be…
Take a moment to consider the following statistics:
- A hundred years ago diabetes affected less than 0.01% of the U.S. population. Today, nearly 27% percent of the population has diabetes or pre-diabetes. And new cases have increased 90% in the last 10 years!
- In 1930 about 3,000 people in the U.S. died of heart disease. By 2005 heart attack and stroke killed 795,670 people. While our population grew 144%, the number of deaths due to heart disease rose 26,422%
- A hundred years ago, cancer was responsible for only 3% of all deaths. Today, cancer is responsible for more than 20% of deaths in the U.S.
What did your Mom always say? We are what we eat.

- Alzheimer’s disease
