Food is healthcare; medicine is sickcare

The healthcare system is run by powerful corporations and insurance companies who operate for pure profit. With the cost of healthcare increasing drastically every year, it is becoming more and more important to invest in nutrient-dense foods with high levels of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and phytochemicals.

In America we spent $2.7 trillion dollars a year on healthcare as a result of a wasteful and profiteering healthcare system. Most bankruptcies in America are related to medical bills of insured people who cannot pay their medical bills.

Pharmaceuticals, insurance companies, drug companies and hospitals are making huge profits while an average American gets less and less for the amount of money they pay for their insurance plans.

We need to focus on improving nutrition in our schools and low-income communities:

Did you know that the American medical system is the number one killer in America where 7,000 people die due to medical errors, 106,000 people die from adverse reactions to drugs and 1.5 million are hurt by preventable medication mistakes. There are 7.5 million unnecessary medical and surgical procedures annually and 42% of people have been affected by medical mistake at some point in their life.

Diet and lifestyle changes are the most important steps you could take to prevent the chances of being affected by obesity and obesity-related diseases. Adopting a healthy lifestyle and incorporating raw fruits and vegetables in your diet can lower the risk of chronic diseases and improving your health and well-being.
