Dr Greger’s annual report reviews last years top 16 causes of death and how diet can significantly change this. This year he discusses why we only see medical advances that costs money! You will never see ads for cost-free health solutions even if they are more affective. Water can improve your child’s performance at school (most children are slightly dehydrated). Exercise improves your bodies ability to fight infections. This is a must view video on how to improve your health and lives without drugs and virtually without cost.

The Addiction is Winning

Smoking is so addictive. I remember a show I saw as a kid that showed a man who was dying of cancer from smoking. He had a wife and kids. They caught him in the garage sneaking a cigarette. Even when we know we are dying from it … we continue with the addiction.

Richard Pryor Was smoking in his death-bed. We try hard to solve this horrible addiction that kills so many people worldwide but the addiction is winning. Being on a death-bed and smoking also causes stress, another bad thing for our health.

Still Smoking – Really?

Smoking is the worst epigenetic reaction we can put our bodies through. It flips so many genes in the wrong way. We know it causes cancer for sure. Why do so many people still smoke? Why are young people starting this horrible habit? Today on the way to the gym, we saw a man in a minivan smoking two cigarettes in 5 minutes. Guess where we was driving to? That’s right a drug store. So ironic!

The environment we force our cells to live in determines there health. Smoking is an unnecessary risk that will kill most people who do it. Save yourself the pain of cancer and the early death, DON’T SMOKE EVER!

DIET or DIE?

Death

Death (Photo credit: tanakawho)

That is the question! Do we diet properly and eat healthy foods or do we allow disease into our lives and premature death? Humans are funny. Even when they know something can kill them, they continue to do it. Smoking is a good example. There is no doubt that smoking is dangerous to our health, yet so many people continue to do it. Is it because they feel it’s cool? It is NOT cool to get sick and die before your time. Diet affects all of us. A good healthy diet can prolong life and make it more enjoyable. A poor diet can make you sick, sad and miserable in life. We all have a choice. Make yours wisely!

Are the Drug Companies for Real?

Stop for no smoking terror

I was waiting for my car at the service shop this morning and saw a commercial on TV for a drug to help stop smoking. Smoking is a horrible addiction. I have spoken about this many times in this BLOG. It turns ON/OFF thousands of genes epigenetically. It turns on the cancer causing genes and turns off the bodies tumor fighting genes. Now we have all heard about someone who lived to be 102 and smoked 5 packs a day. This is NOT the norm! If you look at 100,000 people who smoke a lot, a very high percentage of them will get cancer. So anything that helps stop this addiction is good, right? Well maybe not. This commercial listed the side effects of this drug as suicidal depression, rashes that can cause death, etc. What good is a drug that kills quicker than the thing it’s trying to prevent? If you smoke get professional help. BREAK THE ADDICTION and get off the death sticks. Change your epigenetics back to a more healthy state. Life is short enough.

Why do we do unhealthy things?

Lung cancer

It is amazing how many people still smoke even though it is proven beyond a doubt that it causes lung cancer. A high percentage of smokers do die of lung cancer but it doesn’t seem to stop people. Maybe we feel invincible until it actually happens to us. At that time we always say “Why me?” I remember seeing a show when I was younger on smoking and cancer. It showed a man with a wife and kids. He had a lung removed and they caught him in the garage sneaking a cigarette. Addition is a terrible thing. It makes us do things we really don’t want to do. Smoking, over eating, sugar, salt they are all additions that can lead to disease and premature death.

How can we hope to show people who eating a stronger diet of vegetables will keep them healthy when they still smoke? We humans are an interesting species. We have a large brain and have used it to understand many of the mysteries of life and the universe around us but we still do unhealthy and stupid things to ourselves and our loved ones. We need to either wake up and live a healthier life or become seriously sick at younger and younger ages. Soon we won’t be able to build enough hospitals to house the sick.

Diseases and Epigenetics

UAB studied diet and epigenetic changes that can cause diseases. This study shows relationships between a plant based diet and health. There are so many studies showing this and yet so many people still eat wrong. It reminds me of smoking. Even after all we know today about cancer and smoking, people still smoke.

Dr. McDougall speaks about diet and health. Everyone knows stopping smoking prevents cancer and taking a drunk off the road prevents deaths. Changing diets also prevent many serious diseases. There are many many doctors that see the reality of disease and health. Do you?

Greed, Money & Healthcare

Remember when we started to advertise how bad smoking was for you? The end result took years but millions of Americans don’t smoke now. This saved millions of lives from cancer. Had we developed a drug to fight cancer it would not have been as affective. People would have smoked, got cancer, taken the drug, recovered, and smoked some more, got cancer again and so on. Our healthcare is a lot like this. We don’t really look at what is causing illness but what drugs can alleviate the symptoms. Nothing is cured it is slowed at best. Suffering still happens. We must fight to have sciences like epigenetics and nutrigenomics used to find the root causes of illness and educate Americans, just as we did with smoking, to change their lifestyle habits. We don’t need more instant partial fixes through drugs. Why can’t we cure anything anymore? The answer, unfortunately, is greed and money.

How much does eating animal products cost us?

In my book, Food For Thought – An Epigenetic Guide to Wellness I reference the Worldwide Issues Paper as stating that a minimum of $60,000,000,000 in annual medical costs in the United States is directly attributable to meat consumption. Compare that to $65,000,000,000 in annual medical costs directly attributable to smoking. We all see the risks of smoking but why can’t we see the risks of meat consumption?
