Where I am from in Jamaica medical statistics estimate over 1000 deaths per month that are caused by lifestyle diseases which include:
Heart disease, Cancer, Diabetes (type 1 and 2), Stroke, Chronic Diseases...
Other health conditions that are influenced by poor lifestyle choices include:
Cataracts, and macular degeneration of the eyes, arthritis in all forms, migraine, etc.
Did you know that the Centre For Disease Control and Prevention(CDC), the World Health Organization(WHO), and the United States department of Agriculture(USDA), along with others, have reported that 41 Million people will die from Chronic diseases by 2015 ?
I will be placing a bit later a power point presentation for those who are interested in the figures. The presentation also carries the solution. Please take time to look through the presentation.
Remember, don't be healthy by chance, but by choice.
