“There are strong statements about not consuming foods for health purposes throughout the home almost like advertisements or propaganda for a cause”
Thank you for your comments. Let me clarify few points the latest research facts and data from Harvard Nutrition center (one of the best in the world) that I share in the form of Display Frames for nutrition education and awareness are not considered as Propaganda.
Due to the fact that we are moving towards creating Health Retreat therefore we are sharing the latest research findings by Harvard University and renown physicians for public education regarding Health awareness in the form of Frames, Books and Video throughout the 5000Sf house. Example of renown physicians that I am following are Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn; Prof. Colin Campbell; Prof. Dean Ornish, M.D.; Prof. Robert H. Lustig, M.D.; Dr. Ellsworth Wareham; Dr. Neal Barnard; Dr. Michael Greger; Dr. John McDougall; and Dr. Joel Fuhrman. I believe education, awareness and understanding the problem domain is the first step towards finding optimal healthy nutrition solution for ourselves …
FYI Facts and Data Are Not Propaganda:
Background: In 1960, the United States had the longest life expectancy of any nation in the world. Now, a little over fifty years later, life expectancy in the United States has fallen to the 26th position in the world. Why despite the fact that we spend twice per capita on healthcare and have high standard of living still we don’t have higher longevity?
We present the following facts and figures for your review, with the hope that they underscore just how serious a health issue this is and you may consider changing your lifestyle based on facts before it is too late.
The 2011 Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Report shows that U.S. life expectancy currently ranks 26th in the world. In 1960, American life expectancy was the best in the world. Even though the United States doesn't have the highest life expectancy among OECD nations, it does have the highest share of health care spending: Healthcare costs made up 17.7 percent of U.S. GDP in 2011, nearly double the OECD average among other nations of 9.3 percent. Additionally, the United States spent more than twice per capita ($8,508) on healthcare costs than did other OECD nations on average ($3,339). What are the solutions?
The same OECD report also notes that the obesity rate in the United States is currently the highest in the world among OECD member countries, at 36.5 percent. For reference, the American obesity rate in 1978 was 15 percent. For further comparison, the average obesity rate in other OECD member nations was 22.8 percent in 2011. What is your solutions to decrease – the rate of obesity in United States?
The current Standard American Diet has been identified by top scholars from Harvard University as the leading cause of death in the United States, contributing to approximately 678,000 deaths each year due to nutrition- and obesity-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and type II diabetes. In the last thirty years, obesity rates have doubled in adults, tripled in children, and quadrupled in adolescents. This in turns means that nutrition- and obesity-related diseases will contribute to more American deaths in each coming year unless this tide is rapidly reversed.
Now based on above data and facts please answer following questions for yourself:
- Do you want to live Longer, Healthier and Happier?
- Do you want to lose weight permanently and effectively?
- Do you want to feel better?
- Do you want to have younger, and healthier-looking skin?
- Do you want slow down or reverse aging naturally by diet and light exercise(walking) ?
