                                       Other Populations are Much Healthier

Of the 5.3 billion people on earth, 4 billion of them do not experience these diseases at the rates we do.  EX:  40% of Americans die of cardiovascular disease compared to 6% in Shanghai, China

Okinawans have the highest number of centurions (people who live to at least 100 years old).  What are Okinawans eating daily?

            7 servings of fruits and vegetables        7 servings of whole grains
            2 servings of soy (non-GMO)                   Omega 3 rich fish
            Minimal dairy                                                Minimal meat

Every year, the average American eats:

          * 756 donuts                                            * 60 pounds of cakes & cookies

          * 23 gallons of ice cream                         * 7 pounds of potato chips

          * 22 pounds of candy                              * 200 sticks of gum

          * 134 pounds of refined sugar (adults)

          * 275 pounds of refined sugar (children)  (That is ¾ lbs. each day….5 lbs. each week!)

   It’s no wonder degenerative diseases run rampant in our country,

          and approximately 2/3 of our population is overweight!
