Poor health is America's #1 problem. Over 70% of us are either overweight or obese. Over 70% of Americans are on at least one prescription medication, and more than half take two. Preventable chronic diseases are responsible for the overwhelming majority of deaths in this country. Just two of these chronic illnesses-heart disease and cancer-together account for nearly half of all deaths in the U.S., needlessly taking the lives of 1.2 million loved ones each year. Currently, 94% of the calories being consumed by Americans come from meat, dairy products and processed foods with only 6% of calories coming from healthy fresh vegetables, fruits, beans/legumes, and whole grains, according to the USDA's Profiling Food Consumption in America. The Standard American Diet full of fat and sugar (meats and sweets) is depriving us of real nutrients that our bodies require for good health. In this eye-opening book, the authors reveal the causes of our chronic diseases and the foods that can make us well.
