I recently read that the World Health Organization warned that cancer, heart disease, and all other chronic conditions, which already killed more than 24 million people a year, will impose increasing burdens of suffering and disability on hundreds of millions of others.


Health enemy #1- Heart Disease
FACT: Coronary artery disease is the number one killer in industrialized nation’s today accounting for over 7.2 million deaths a year.

Heart disease is an inflammatory disease of the artery-not a disease of cholesterol. Over half of the patients who suffer a heart attack have normal cholesterol levels. The underlying cause of inflammation of the artery is “oxidized” LDL cholesterol, homocysteine, along with excessive free radicals caused by hypertension, diabetes, cigarette smoking, fatty meals and elevated insulin levels. All of these causes of inflammation of the artery are either eliminated or significantly reduced by the use of nutritional supplementation

Health Enemy #2- Cancer
FACT: 6.3 million people die of cancer yearly

In spite of the great advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, the eventual outcome is too often a very difficult and painful death. Medical literature increasingly supports the fact that cancer develops from damage to the DNA of the cells by unstable molecules over the course of 10 to 20 years. Many studies have correlated that high levels of quality vitamin C intakes with low rates of cancer, particularly cancers of the mouth, larynx and esophagus.

Health Enemy #3- Stroke
FACT: 4.6 million people die from stroke every year

Stroke occurs suddenly and usually without warning. Dr. Meir Stampfer reported in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1995 that 15 percent of all strokes could be related to elevated homocysteine, a by-product of protein metabolism that is elevated in individuals who have low levels of folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12. Studies have shown that by increasing your levels of vitamins B6 and B12 with high quality supplements could help prevent stroke

Health Enemy #4- Diabetes
FACT: 135 million people suffer from diabetes, and it’s estimated to rise to 300 million by the year 2025

The overwhelming new cases of diabetes in the world today are the result of insulin resistance. Physicians are busy treating blood sugars rather than the underlying problem, which is insulin resistance. Diet, exercise and potent nutritional supplements all improve sensitivity to your own insulin and are critical in preventing diabetes from occurring or if you already have diabetes, helping control your diabetes.

Health Enemy #5- Osteoporosis
FACT: 25 north Americans suffer from osteoporosis

Osteoporosis and bone health not only depend on estrogen and calcium, but on a wide range of nutrients, including vitamins B6, C, D, K, folic acid, magnesium, manganese, zinc and copper. Failure to meet one or more of these nutrient needs could result in accelerated osteoporosis. Maintaining strong and healthy bones should begin early.

Health Enemy #6- Arthritis
FACT: over 165 million people have some form of arthritis
More than 70 to 80 percent of the population over 50 suffers from degenerative arthritis.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication does nothing to slow down the progression of the disease and is responsible for over 100,000 hospital admissions each year with 16,000 deaths. Glucosamine sulfate along with complete and balanced nutritional supplements on the other hand, actually slows down degenerative arthritis and is even able to increase cartilage within the joint, without dangerous side effects.

Health Enemy #7- Alzheimer’s
FACT: An estimated 29 million people suffer from dementia

Alzheimer’s dementia has been shown to be caused by oxidative stress. Patients who have the highest intake of antioxidants, which combats oxidative stress have the lowest risk of developing Alzheimer’s dementia. I believe that the best way to protect yourself from the development of these neuro-degenerative diseases is by taking highly potent nutritional supplements.

Health Enemy #8- Obesity
FACT: For the first time in the history of the United States and other industrialized nations there are more people who are obese than are of normal weight

Researchers are beginning to realize that one of the main causes of obesity is insulin resistance. Eating in such a way as not to spike your blood sugar, modest exercise, and nutritional supplements all improve insulin sensitivity. This triad of healthy lifestyles has a side affect of fat loss.

Health Enemy #9- Skin Cancer
FACT: A five-fold increase in almost all types of skin cancer has occurred over the past two decades

Recent medical research shows that skin cancer is caused by oxidative stress. To combat this problem it is important to choose a sun screen that protects us from both UVA and UBV sunlight and to use high quality antioxidant nutritional supplements to fortify our own antioxidant defense systems. It is also vital that we carefully choose and use skin care products that are natural and contain a full array of antioxidants.

The good news is, there is a way to figure out exactly what your body needs and with a little research you can find a company that can supply all your supplemental needs and by taking the right combination of vitamin supplements you will help protect your body and mind from these 9 deadly health enemies that are sending people to an early grave.

"Back at the turn of the 20th century, the five leading causes of death were all infectious diseases. The epidemic of degenerative diseases has developed throughout this century." -Myron Wentz, Ph.D., Founder and Chairman, USANA Health Sciences, Inc.

Degenerative Disease
(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
A degenerative disease is a disease in which the function or structure of the affected tissues or organs will progressively deteriorate over time, whether due to normal bodily wear or lifestyle choices such as exercise or eating habits. Degenerative diseases are the opposite of infectious diseases.

Don't Take Your Own Health for Granted !
