Nearly half of all adults suffer from one or more chronic health conditions. The effects of these ailments range from reduced quality of life to long-term disability. In the past century, the prevalence of these ailments has significantly increased, dramatically changing the major causes of death. Generations ago, some of these chronic diseases were virtually unknown.
What has happened in the last hundred or so years? Is it an extremely radical diet change, an increasingly toxic environment, toxins and harmful additives in food, a dramatic lifestyle change, or a combination of these?
In this comprehensive text, the author, William R. Ware, addresses chronic diseases. Most are typically viewed as incurable. Using expertise gained over fourteen years writing monthly newsletters for International Health News, Ware discusses heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and related topics. He describes and documents non-drug interventions that address prevention, can significantly delay progression, or even induce remission. Non-drug interventions have shown significant and even sensational benefits, especially in the chronic diseases discussed.
Longevity is also discussed, and what can be done to increase the probability of a life of healthy aging. Ware provides information based on many studies that you can easily integrate into your lifestyle to increase longevity and quality of life.
