Diet-related conditions

Thursday, December 2, 2021 1:22 PM

This article from the Washington Post makes a lot of good points about the state of health in our nation.  It points out an interesting observation about the survivability of covid, “Americans who suffer from diet-related conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and obesity are 12 times as likely to die after a covid infection, said Dariush Mozaffarian, a cardiologist and dean of the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University."

It further states that, "More than 100 million Americans — nearly half of all adults — suffer from diabetes or prediabetes, Mozaffarian told lawmakers at the hearing. And about 122 million have cardiovascular disease, which kills roughly 840,000 people each year."

In summary it states, “...more Americans are sick or suffer from major medical conditions than are healthy, and much of this is related to diet-related illness,' Mozaffarian said."

It is the purpose of Better Body Clinical Nutriton to help turn this around.  

The Basic Purpose of Better Body Clinical Nutrition is to improve overall health by helping isolate the factors that are getting in the way of the body healing itself. Once these are isolated the purpose becomes to restore the health of any areas affected and held back from surviving.  Having accomplished this, the purpose becomes to maintain health ensuring the best possible quality of life for as long as possible.  


A sub purpose of this is to help bring awareness to the factors that led to any particular health challenge so a person isn’t subject to a return of ill health.  


Another sub purpose is helping individuals take charge of their health so their health isn’t left to chance. I would love to see an end to Diet-related conditions and see us become the healthiest nation on the planet.  It starts with each of us making it a priority to have a better and healthier life.  We just launched a podcast today to help spread this message far and wide.  Here is the link for the Health Matters Podcast.
