Have you thought about helping people beside nursing? have you told yourself how evidently people getting worst in terms of their health despite all the interventions and medical treatment? Have we ask ourselves "can I do something better to help them?" thus, helping ourselves as well. What if I can change one thing that leads to a better longevity...would you care? A few questions longing for answers...what if?

My following response is to the poll question. Of course a person's eating habits can make a difference in the odds of developing many disease processes such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and so forth. This has been proven by research time and time again.

Ornish has proven that diet can affect heart disease. He has done numerous research on how diet can heal those with cardiac disease. We know that foods high in cholesterol affect the vasculature, and foods high in sugar affect blood sugars etc. OUr diets of extremely processed foods has correlated with increase in colon cancer etc. Diet definitely affects ones health. So, knowing that why don't we teach our children how to eat more healthy??
