No one has a vested interest in you being healthy, except you!
- The government has to pay more money in social security benefits if you live longer.
- Drug manufacturers and hospitals don’t earn money unless you need their assistance because of your ill health.
- Tobacco companies, fast food companies, etc. actually want to sell you products that they know will damage your health.
So, if you’re going to go down the path of healthy living, you’re going to pretty much do it on your own.
Some quotes to remember:
"The doctors of the future will give no medicine, but rather will interest their patients in the care of the human frame through lifestyle and diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." - Thomas Edison
If the doctor of today does not become the dietitian of tomorrow, the dietitian of today will become the doctor of tomorrow." - Dr. Alexis Carrel, Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research
“Let food be thy medicine.” - Hippocrates.
