Nutrient deficiencies can cause countless ailments and diseases. However, eating the proper foods and supplementing certain nutrients can reverse poor health and reduce your risk of illness.
The cost of health care is skyrocketing. A recent news report indicated that the premiums for “Obamacare” (The Affordable Health Care Act) health insurance will likely increase by 25% in 2017.1 The current president will likely respond to this announcement with claims that Obamacare should be abolished, or that pharmaceutical companies are taking too much profit. There are many reasons why healthcare costs have risen so much, but it is unlikely that the real cause of this healthcare crisis will be part of this political discussion.
The real reason for these high costs is the state of health of Americans. In the past 60 years, the percentage of the population suffering from a chronic disease has risen from 10% to over 60%.2 A British economist has estimated that 100% of the GNP of the United States will be consumed by the cost of health care by the year 2065.3 And the number one cause of this astronomical increase in the cost of health care, according to every knowledgeable health expert, is nutritional deficiencies.4
