Kernaussage 1 von 10

Poor diet is the number one cause of premature death, and it’s often ignored by the medical industry.

Today many people live to 100 and beyond, but living longer doesn’t mean living healthier.

According to a study published in the American Journal of Medicine of 42,000 autopsies of patients aged over 100, a large percentage died from diseases rather than simply old age, despite being assessed as healthy right up until their deaths.

How come?

The primary culprit is diet. Just take a “Nutritional Update for Physicians” published in the Permanente Journal in 2013, which said that the meat, dairy, eggs and processed foods that dominate the typical American diet are bad news. The study found that people who ate diets rich in these food groups were at greater risk of heart disease, diabetes and a number of other chronic ailments. Not just that, but excessive animal fat and processed meat also resulted in high cholesterol and an elevated chance of heart disease.

If you don’t accept that, just compare the American diet to that of another nation. After adopting US eating habits, Japanese-Americans are at as great a risk of suffering a heart attack at 40 as their Japanese counterparts are at 60.

So, food is the issue, and the American medical profession is sorely lacking in nutritional knowledge. It’s so bad that only 25 percent of all US medical schools offer even one course in nutrition, marking a 37 percent decline from just 30 years ago.

This is no accident. In 2001, a bill was introduced in California that would require physicians to receive 12 hours of nutritional training over four years, but the California Medical Association opposed it. The California Medical Board requires all doctors to receive 12 hours of training in pain management and end-of-life care but has less interest in using nutrition to stop people getting sick.

Instead, doctors are being taught to prescribe drugs. As a result, the US market is responsible for one-third of the $1 trillion plus spent annually on prescriptions worldwide, and around 70 percent of Americans take a prescription drug regularly.
