Chew on This

Posted on November 19, 2008

Here’s something to think about from the introduction in Walter Willett’s book Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating:

“By making the right choices, you will help yourself avoid some of the things we think of as the inevitable penalties of getting older.  A healthy diet teamed with regular exercise and no smoking can eliminate 80 percent of heart disease and 70 percent of some cancers.”

Lifestyle, ladies and gentlemen.  Lifestyle.

Easier said than done, I know, but we have to do it.  There’s no need for so many people to be afftected by chronic diseases that can, in a lot of cases, be prevented. 

If you’re reading this you probably are already living a pretty healthy lifestyle.  But what can we do to encourage everyone else to make simple changes in the way they live?
