Chronic diseases --such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer-- accounts for some of the most frequent health problems in the USA, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Yet several of these chronic diseases are preventable, as they are linked to poor diet and lifestyle options such as tobacco use, drinking excessive alcohol, and insufficient physical activity.

The CDC reports chronic diseases are the major causes of disability and death. The fantastic news is that you've got the capacity to help prevent chronic illness, as making positive lifestyle and diet changes can help lower risk. With the right diet therapy, eating healthful foods, getting enough exercise, and refraining from tobacco and excessive alcohol usage confer numerous health benefits--such as potentially preventing the onset of chronic diseases.
