This is a great article that talks about how modern medicine is struggling with issues that are at their core a failure of Nutrition. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), chairman of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition, & Forestry Subcommittee on Food and Nutrition, Specialty Crops, Organics, and Research had some interesting statistics:
"…Americans are overfed but undernourished and are seeing these staggering rates of disease and early death."
But perhaps the most alarming admittion is that, "nearly one-third of federal spending is now going to healthcare…” with 80% of that going for the, "Treatment of preventable diseases, many of which are caused by poor diets.” In our blog post on Nutrition Coaching I go over how that is a great way of helping to implement health and lifestyle changes that lead to better overall health.
