The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) published a study that shows the increased consumption of red meat increases the risk of diabetes. The study was conducted by the American Medical Association. Decreasing red meat intake lowered weight gain and lowered the risk of diabetes. It’s not just sugar that raises your risk of diabetes! Also remember the so called “White Meat” is about 85% the same fat as red meat. Eating a diet of increased white meat may not be the solution either.


Health is a Right

I remember reading a saying, “Life is not about the number of breaths we take but by the number of moments that take our breath away.” In health this can be stated as, “Health is not measured in the diseases we beat but by the number we avoid altogether.” We are trained by our healthcare to believe we will all get sick because we are living longer. Nothing can be farther from the truth! We can avoid diseases but it takes knowledge and hard work. The result is a life of health. It’s your choice, choose wisely.

Healthy can be obtained by:

  1. Diet
  2. Lowered stress
  3. Exercise
  4. Positive thinking
  5. Belief that you can be healthy
