All around the world you’ll find people in varying degrees of health. While most health-enthusiast tend to get down specifically on the U.S. and other western countries, other countries are increasingly becoming more and more “westernized”.
They’ve begun to abandon their traditional diets, typically based on starches, vegetables, fruits, and smaller amounts of meat, in favor of the more western approach: lots of meat, animal products, and processed foods.
Yet it’s surprising to find that many people, even those in modern western countries, simply aren’t aware of how profoundly their diet impacts their health, and instead are concerned about other unfound health hazards.
Check out this video today where Dr. Milton Mills gives a presentation on why exactly there are so many sick people in the world and how that can be changed.
- How many people actually die per year from diet-related diseases in contrast to how most people fear they will die.
- Why more children in the US are put on behavioral-disorder medications every year.
- How a high intake of meat and animal products has been linked to depression and other psychological disorders in children.
- What people can do to shift their focus to the things in their lives that really do impact their health and as a result live long, happy lives.
Dr. Mills points out several important points when it comes to the importance of prioritizing our health. Many people spend hours every week talking and worrying about things that ultimately do very little to negatively impact their health.
Many of those same people are more afraid of being eaten by a shark than experiencing bad health from their poor diet, too.
Considering that there are so many things in the world that you “could” be afraid of, it’s important prioritize what actually impacts you and then taking control of the things that you do decide.
