Heart Disease, Cancer, & Stroke


            The U.S. has a major problem on their hands because millions of people are being diagnose with the following, HEART DISEASE, CANCER, and STROKE every minute.  Young adults are rapidly being diagnosed.  Did you know 65% of all diseases could be preventable through good nutrition?  Choosing a proper diet and the foods you eat can save your life.

            Another problem, obesity, is on the rise- especially in children.  Why? Kids eat what parents eat.  They follow what they see and what they are given.  Therefore, in later years of his or her life they will most likely either develop the above and eventually diabetes.

            HEART DISEASE is the number 1 killer of death known to be called as “widow maker”.  Men were being diagnosed more but women have finally caught up. 

            CANCER is the number 2 killer of death from smoking, bad diet, or genetics.

            STROKE is the number 3 killer of death by far being the scariest illness. Why? Because of its unpredictability- die or survive with a major disability and may not be able to care for your own self.

            Some causes that leads to these killers:

ü  High Blood Pressure

ü  Arteriosclerosis

ü  Cholesterol

            Remember, disease has no prejudice.
