Are you sick and tired of a medical industry that's influenced by drug reps trained in communication skills, sales, and profit margins; and with research funded and designed to benefit pharmaceutical companies?
Are you fed up with a health care system, including dietitians and nurse educators who encourage diabetics to eat dangerously or serve pizza, fried chicken, and beef 'n noodles to severely ill patients?
Are you disappointed that our educational system puts no value in instructing students in optimal health and longevity? How fulfilling and productive is a career intermingled with food addiction, hangovers, and disease? What enjoyment and satisfaction is there in a beautiful home and nice car mixed with alcoholism, eating disorders, heart disease, pain meds, chemo treatments, diabetes, and broken relationships?
Are you saddened by a culture that models, by example, and promotes gluttonous pleasures and indulgences? What will happen to a society in which eating for disease has run rampant?
Are you disturbed by the fact that a quarter of a million dollars can be spent on a heart surgery that would have been easy to avoid with a proper diet-style? Are you equally disturbed that $110 can be spent on a small vial of insulin for type 2 diabetes, when eating healthfully would've resolved it ~ while entire families go to bed hungry? Is it even ethical to squander such financial resources? Do we need more medical care or more health education?
Imagine the revolution.
Imagine medical care and treatments that get people well based on scientific nutritional research instead of unsuccessfully managing diseases based on financial gains and losses.
Imagine an education system that values instruction in optimal health and longevity as a top priority for all students; no child left behind.
Imagine an entire society that has eradicated food addiction and nearly 80% of its diseases.
Imagine the financial and emotional burdens lifted as a result of no more heart bypass surgeries, cancers, dementia, chemical restraints, and vials of insulin.
The change of one is a transformation.
The change of many is a revolution.
Change begins with you and me.
Let’s all be that change.
It's time for the revolution!
