Covid-19 & Health Update: Food, Inflammation & Chronic Disease Link

Hey everyone:

Why do I keep giving you information about food? Perhaps you do not need it, however, at least 70% of our citizens do. So, please pass along this information and reduce the potential misery and suffering of your family, friends, community, and planet!

“Chronic illnesses and health problems either wholly or partially attributable to diet account for the largest burden of chronic illnesses and health problems Worldwide. These diseases (e.g. cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, obesity, dementia etc.) are epidemic in modern societies and typically afflict 50–65% of the adult population, yet they are rare or non-existent in hunter-gatherers and other less Westernized people.”

 “What the World needs is an integrated and sustainable food policy that makes the best and most appropriate use of the technologies at our disposal to promote health and help prevent disease. Diet induced diseases account for the largest burden of chronic illnesses and health problems Worldwide. Historically a lack of knowledge about human nutritional requirements (including for the brain) helped promote diet induced disease. The scientific knowledge currently exists to help prevent many of the current deficiencies and imbalances in the human diet.”

 “Yet, now in the twenty-first century, there is a global epidemic of non-communicable diseases….(and this is a) situation out of control. The causes are preventable. Non-communicable disease is a global epidemic because of the combined effect of the modern diet and a sedentary lifestyle (and drug abuse). Human food production must be linked to human nutritional requirements as its first priority. Low-energy dense, drug-free diet rich in bioavailable nutrients – plus exercise – is most effective for preventing non-communicable disease throughout life. High-energy-density and low-nutrient-density (foods sources), which characterize the modern diet must be overcome simultaneously.”

Bottom Line: You probably already know the bottom line: avoid all processed foods, go organic, go plant based, reduce animal foods, go whole-foods, and move your body in a regular exercise routine. If you do not know how to cook, now is a great time to start. I have also read that at least 80% of the comorbidities that drive the severity of this pandemic are diet related. The layering of multiple health strategies is required to achieve optimal health. Start with the fundamentals: Eat Right, Move Right, Think Right (De-stress!)!! Your future is based upon what you do NOW, so please get it right!!
