Doctors Note

Eating healthy isn’t only important for young people or just losing weight but has been prescribed by doctors to patients who felt awful or couldn’t be prescribed more medications. According to the American Heart Association, the number of people with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes or cardiovascular disease continues to rise, at approximately 180 million people.

Obesity is a huge problem many americans face, factors resulting from obesity can result in a number of issues. Right now more than two thirds of the population is overweight. I think that the more people who are aware of the problems they may face, will try to eat healthier and maintain a healthier lifestyle without needing the doctors.

Antibiotics when fighting low cholesterol have a few negative effects. First, they are very expensive, even doctors have a hard time because the amount they spend isn’t worth how much the patients still suffer because of the side effects such as muscle aches or liver function failures.

These people were sent to a “Cooking Cardiologist” in my opinion this is very smart because they get put on certain diets and given healthy foods to eat, instead of just medication. Not only does this make people healthier but they are preventing heart disease.

The Step One Foods came together and figured out that the average person will need fibers, omega 3-fatty acids, antioxidants and plant sterols. This is like eating a salad with nuts and beans along with some fruit for a snack.

I believe anyone can change the way they eat to make themselves healthy and alive.
