Health Troubles and Our Choices
I had just seen a post by a Facebook friend about how he was cancer-free after a battle but now had to go in for a triple bypass due to blocked arteries to his heart.
Of course, I wish him well and was sorry to hear of his physical challenges.
What I thought immediately was: this man could have avoided probably both health troubles or at least one of them by changing his diet, which as far as I know is loaded with the standard American fare: heavy on the meat and dairy, please.
Now, interestingly, I then found that an article in an email newsletter showed up moments later, outlining how a man who changed his diet turned his health completely around.
“After living with a diet focused on chicken and soda, it was no surprise when Robert Kluttz was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, suffered a stroke, and developed blood pressure three times higher than the average.
At the time he owned two Chik-fil-A fast food franchise restaurants and was consuming chicken for breakfast and fried chicken for lunch, almost everyday. After trying a few other remedies Kluttz eventually met Sven Jonsson, MD who introduced him to the idea of an animal- and oil-free diet.
Within nine months Kluttz had stable blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and lost weight. “I am 61, but I feel like I am 30,” he said.”
“When I accepted the new way of eating, I got my strength back. I am getting a second chance in life.”
I’m at a loss as to how so many people don’t do more research and won’t consider changing their diets to save their own lives.
