It is estimated that ones' lifestyle is responsible for 80% to 90% of the chronic disease or vital health that they experience. Major studies indicate that 80% of cause, is factors of lifestyle, and that fraction really does not move below 50%. That means that people have a great deal of control. In the past, it was assumed that every disease was a predetermined fate whether we spoke of diabetes or cancer. Presently, researchers see that the expression of genes is controlled by epigenetics, truely how our ancestors lived as well as the choices that we make. Nutritional choices, physical activity, sleep quality, and stress management are the tools which determine disease or health. How people look, how they think and how they feel, it is the actual phenotype that is influenced.
The good news is that if we teach people how to make better choices, so that their bodies function, and they reduce environmental exposure, we will drastically reduce chronic disease incidence. The number one killer today is heart disease and everyone can alter its' progression with good lifestyle choices.
