While it is true that diseases have been around since the creation of man, never before has man been affected by chronic diseases as is the case now.
In an effort to draw attention to the dramatic increases in chronic disease world-wide, the World Health Organization (WHO) published a report titled “Preventing Chronic Disease – A Vital Investment”. The report points to the alarming reality that the occurrence of chronic disease world-wide is increasing faster than the population. In 2005, 60% of all deaths, about 35 million, was attributed to chronic disease. By 2015, they expect that number to rise by 17% to 41 million!
The WHO sees nutrition as key to good health. Yet, most of us never think of how important the foods are that we eat. We eat because we are hungry or because we enjoy the taste and pleasure associated with particular foods. Very few of us select foods for their nutritional value.
Food companies have played upon if not exploited this human characteristic. As a result many traditional foods are being replaced by non traditional processed foods that provide more pleasure. Food processing removes many essential nutrients some of which are vital antioxidants that help protect our body against free radical damage, a major cause of chronic diseases like high blood pressure.
The home page of this blog features nutrients that have been shown to lower high blood pressure while protecting against the damaging effects of free radicals.
I hope this will assist people with high blood pressure and those who seek to keep their blood pressure within normal parameters eat foods and supplement their diets with dietary supplements that contain these antioxidant nutrients.
