Japan has the second highest life expectancy, next to Monaco being the first. Monaco is the second smallest country in the world, but they have the highest life expectancy of an average of 89.4 years while Japan is about 85.3 years.
But what about the United States of America? With the continuous decline of life expectancy due to higher rates of suicide, drug overdose, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, flu/pneumonia, chronic lower respiratory diseases, and unintentional injuries, they ranked forty-third with an average life expectancy of 78.7 years.
To lessen the constant drop of the life expectancy, change, is what we all need to do. Change, regardless of how small it is, gets you one step closer to your goal.
With high calorie, carbohydrate, and protein as the diet majority of the people from all over the world have, it is essential to know that not only the environment contributes to what happens to your body, so are the kinds of food and other things such as medicines and vitamins, skin care products, topical products that go inside your body.
But what should be done to improve the quality of life and not suffer various chronic illnesses without having to depend on artificial products and services such as supplements and surgeries?
Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn is a heart surgeon who proved that heart disease is reversible with diet alone. How is it possible, you ask?
In Dr. Esselstyn’s words, we can eliminate chronic illness if we can get people to eat whole-food plant-based nutrition.
Taking experimental data from patients severely suffering from a triple vessel coronary, and carotid diseases among others, results have shown that those ailments were stopped and reversed with the kind of diet and lifestyle you have.
John McDougall, a friend of Dr. Esselstyn, has said that people love to hear good things about their bad habits, and true enough, those with a large number of readers and audiences are the articles justifying what is wrong for you.
With all the misleading articles found on both the Internet and magazines, it could be confusing which kind of diet and lifestyle to follow. But a lot of studies have been made, and all shows that having a plant-based diet can reverse various diseases without having to result to surgeries and unnecessary medicines that could do more harm than good.
