The Path to Health Enlightenment

In a society awash with diet gimmicks and weight loss drugs, it seems the tried-and-true is still the way to go. The Cardio Blog passes on information claiming diet and fitness are the proven path to heart health. Take a look:
Its advice that we hear all the time, whether we choose to follow it or not: diet and exercise can prevent heart disease. But when you see the statistics, the numbers are staggering -- 80% of heart disease and 90% of type 2 diabetes could be prevented simply by making lifestyle changes.

So why aren't more Americans doing it then? Health experts say there are hurdles to cross, such as:
  • lack of information and misinformation
  • deeply ingrained old habits
  • lack of awareness and lack of planning
Agreed, the solution is pretty simple, but how come so many people are still dying from heart disease? I think healthy diet and fitness are being consumed by junk food and laziness.
