8 Principles to Total Health and Wellness by Dayo Olomu

7 diseases are now responsible for 3 out of 4 deaths, Coronary disease, stroke, high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, obesity and cancer. These diseases are primarily linked to what we eat in the following 7 areas: sugar, refined foods, salt, fat, proteins, beverages and snacks.
If people would lower their cholesterol to normal, their blood pressures to normal, and quit smoking, it has been estimated that 82% of all heart attacks before 65 could be prevented. Heart disease now kills four out of every ten people.
In men, the second and the third most frequently occurring cancers are those of the prostate and colon. For women, it’s cancers of the breast and colon. Too much fat and being overweight are the contributing factors for these cancers.
Just four lifestyle factors, no smoking, no alcohol, a high-fibre, low-fat vegetarian diet and normal weight could prevent 74 per cent of all cancers found in the world today.
Excess weight lays the foundation for nearly every degenerative disease. Obese people are three times more likely to have heart disease, four times more likely to suffer from high blood pressure, five times more likely to develop diabetes and elevated blood cholesterol, and six times more likely to have gallbladder disease. They also develop more cancer of the colon, prostate, breast, cervix, uterus and ovaries.
