Many people are aware of the very real dangers of poor diet and lifestyle. We’ve been witnesses (or victims!) to the downfalls of these types of behaviors since we could even think about it.
The Standard American diet hasn’t been doing anybody any favors, with the exception of “big business”. The truth is, unhealthy diet and lifestyle has real effects on not only the individual eating and living unhealthfully, but on the entire world as a whole.
Check out this video today where Dr. Dean Ornish explains just a few of the dangers behind eating your typical Western diet, and how making simple changes to our diet and lifestyle can radically change our entire world for the better.
- Why in just a single generation certain Asian families have gone from having the lowest rates of chronic diseases to the highest.
- How a simple change in diet and lifestyle is translating to tumor reductions and healing in once sick people.
- The surprising truth on how ill people actually are: why this generation may live shorter lives than their parents!
- How healthy living and eating can actually be good for business and the strength of the economy.
I think that Dr. Ornish brings up some great points, and it’s actually a little shocking to learn how poor the Western world’s health is becoming.
But just as he mentioned, it’s also just as easy to make the diet and lifestyle changes necessary to bring about the best health you can for yourself and everybody around you. It just comes down to a matter of actually doing it!
