Health Care Costs Continue Relentless Climb -You Pay

A Whole Foods Diet is the Best and Quickest Answer To Our National Black Hole for Money

Did you ever wonder why pharmacies are so conveniently found in supermarkets? You may take this so much for granted that even the question sounds strange. Here’s the connection.

The highest profit margin items in the supermarket are animal foods and manufactured foods. This is why industry pushes these

products with heavy advertising, coupons, and funds to develop ever more offerings. How often do you see an ad for fresh, unprocessed carrots or potatoes, or for dried beans or bulk brown rice? Industry makes few profits off these whole foods.

The animal protein, oils, and chemicals in animal and manufactured foods then contribute to chronic inflammation throughout your body. This ongoing inflammatory process underlies most chronic illnesses, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, migraines, sinusitis, allergies, depression, and more.

So high-profit-margin drugs and over-the-counter remedies are a natural complement to the bulk of the foods that line aisle after aisle in the supermarket. You can find whole food choices, though, in the produce section and scattered throughout the store. Look closely and you will see whole wheat bread made without animal products or hydrogenated oils, whole grain cereals and oatmeal, dried and canned beans, salsas, dairy-free milks, corn tortillas, and many other tasty options.

As supermarkets get larger and the dizzying menu of manufactured foods grows, it’s little surprise that health care costs reached a record peak in 2009. With a price tag of $2.5 trillion, health care ate up 17.3% of our gross domestic product (GDP) in 2009. This is

up from 16.2% of GDP just last year.

In just another ten short years, researchers project that health care will use up one out of every five dollars spent in the U.S. This means that, while you work about two months out of every year now just to pay for health care for yourself and others, in 2020 you will be laboring two and a half months just to cover the nation’s and your own health care bills.

Is that how you want to see the U.S. use its resources? Is that your preferred use for your own time? Let’s get serious. Whatever healthcare system we have now and in the future, costs will be out of control until we are eating plant-based whole foods diets. You can lead the way for yourself and your family. Are you willing to take at least a small step in this direction today?

    Yes, and you should try many different foods in small quantities. It used to be bored. Any kind of food, you should find your self to a different treatment or favorite food from your diet it will be easier and your free time to meet the weight remains. They are so much better, and another thing you should do is try to go it on sheets feel good about themselves.

    I’m going to coat-tail on what “Very Evolved” said… The way you connect to your audience is… Know who you are writing to. You need to pick a Target Audience and stick to them. You wouldn’t write to an audience of 14yr olds the same way you would write to an audience of 60yr olds.
