Illness and its link to Diet and Lifestyle
The World Heath Organization published that some 80 year old’s have the physical and mental capabilities of 20 year old’s. This backs up the argument that Ageing is related to lifestyle factors .
At the time of some research the effects on poor lifestyle factors and the current Covid pandemic where not yet fully known but it is predicted that it would only make it worse.
In 2019 Heart disease was still the Number 1 cause of death in Australia and these 4 factors;
- High blood pressure
- Dietary Risks
- Tobacco use
- High BMI (body mass index)
- High fasting plasma glucose (linked to diabetes)
In 2018 Australia’s health and its diseases where linked to poor lifestyle habits again . The 5 leading causes of death :
- Coronary heart disease
- Dementia and Alzheimer disease
- Cerebrovascular disease
- Lung cancer
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
In 2017/18 the estimate was that 67 percent of Australians over the age of 18 where over weight or obese. 75 percent of men and 60 percent of Women.
A recent American study states that people who ate plant based meals for dinner had a lower heart disease risk. Those who ate meat and refined carbohydrates at this time had a higher risk. If meat and refined carbohydrates where eaten in the day no negative effects were evident. Your risk can be reduced by up to 10 percent if you follow these guidelines.
I love this Video Its from 2006 but still incredibly relevant to the new research. Please watch it!
“Its proven that 90 percent of people who achieve long lasting results have assistance before, during and after the process“
