If you were told you could live until a ripe old age by living healthier OR you could take a pill everyday and achieve the same, which would you pick?
While America has taken steps to increase nutritional awareness over the past few years, the majority would still rather consume packaged, processed foods that are literally killing them and ingest chemicals to cure illnesses instead of make healthier choices.
So many ailments people suffer from: headaches, insomnia, hypertension, depression, obesity, etc… could be prevented through dietary and lifestyle changes.
Would you rather pop a pill OR incorporate more fruits/vegetables into your diet and physical activity into your day? I know not ALL ailments can be cured by improving one’s lifestyle and I do find value in modern medicine, but I fear our thought process as a society is backwards.
Instead of “what can I take to feel better?” perhaps the question should be “what can I eat or what am I lacking in my diet that could make me feel better?”
