Creative Eating & Chronic Disease

The health of your heart is in your hands =)

The top 3 reasons for death are:

  1. Heart Disease
  2. Cancer
  3. Stroke

I find it really interesting that the prevention of each one of these chronic diseases is in our hands, yet they still remain the top causes of death.  By promotion of health information, we may be able to take a step forward in preventing theses chronic conditions from developing as often.  For now, we should focus on having healthy diets, getting proper amounts of exercise, and avoiding known carcinogens.  Eating creatively can help immensely in the diet aspect, as you are getting a variety of nutrient-dense foods that will benefit your body in both the short and long term.
