Nutrition

Discover the truth

Background and Overview

We were designed to live 120 years. Most of us live for just over half this time and die from the effects of ‘civilisation’, rather than the natural causes of aging. The reasons for this are multifactorial, but the most significant predisposing factor is the dramatic change which has occurred over the past 70 years to our nutritional status. We used to die from infection or trauma. 20th Century medicine has scored significant victories against these causes. Today, most illnesses are caused by lifestyle factors such as poor nutrition, lack of exercise and smoking. To effectively address the first of these causes, we need to improve our nutritional status. But first, we need to understand what is going wrong.
