Fruits And Vegetables - A Health Care Plan We Can Live With
Posted Jul 06 2009 12:00am
Most people don't, won't, or can't seem to get enough fruits and vegetables in their diet, which is why The Health & Wellness Institute recommends Juice Plus+® . Not just a few vitamins, Juice Plus+® is a concentrate of nutrients from raw, whole foods - 7 different fruits and 8 different vegetables.
If we can get more people discussing, touting, shouting, and screaming about the importance of a healthy diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, as the solution for our health care dilemma...then we might have a chance. A chance at saving our health, saving our strained national budget (is there a budget?), and reversing the impending doom that seems to be lurking over our children's health. We don't need more money "thrown" at the 'problem'. The problem isn't a lack of access to health care, but is a lack of nutrition. Good nutrition. Here's one author who agrees --
The new health care plan for Americans should include nutritious food from sources like the Denver garden. American couch potato life style is swiftly taking a toll on the health care system. As Americans consume more and more empty calories and less nutritious food, more health care is needed.
The new health care plan should include educating Americans as to their food choices. So many young people are growing up thinking that energy drinks and fast food are the best way to get through the day. Eating good, healthy , vitamin and nutrition packed foods from the garden should be part of every Americans new health care plan.
The new health care plan begs for an old theme. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, is the one that comes to mind. We are learning more every day about the way high antioxidant fruits and vegetables help in the fight against major illnesses, diseases and conditions. Is it any wonder why the top killers in this country are diet associated diseases? ( Full story from The Examiner )
Comments: It may be a stretch to think that we could undo the damage we have done to ourselves from our poor diet choices, but that is the only real solution...for the time being. Maybe research will uncover the gene that controls motivation for all things good and healthy, and we'll learn to 'switch it on' so that everyone will start eating (and enjoying!) raw, whole food fruits and vegetables, start exercising more, and be turned off by the unhealthy fast foods and soft drinks and processed foods that are contributing to the demise of our nation's and the world's health.
