#101–The leading causes of death for our grandparents were from infection diseases. In the year 2000, 8 of the top 10 causes of death were related to NUTRITION. And it’s even worse now. Take the Pima Indians as an example. On their native diet, they were strong and healthy. Yet on the Standard American Diet (SAD) their health deteriorated until the third generation when most were obese and diabetic. Jeffrey Bland, author of Genetic Nutritioneering, writes that “75% of an individual’s health after the age of 40 is dependent upon what the person has done to his or her genes, not to the genes themselves.” We are eating ourselves into disease.
