  1. Cancer Linked to Other Chronic Illnesses.
    People With High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Heart Attack More Likely to Have Cancer.

    April 2, 2010 -- Having a heart attack or chronic illness may raise the risk of being diagnosed with cancer, according to a new survey.

  2. In the United States, only about 4% of total annual health expenditure is directed at preventing chronic diseases. As the national conversation about healthcare reform continues, there should be a paradigm shift in healthcare practice - working to improve health through prevention rather than mainly managing symptoms. The United States spent about $2.2 trillion on healthcare in 2007. This accounts for 16 percent of our gross domestic product, and that's projected to rise to 20 percent by 2017.

  3. Lifelong SupplementsTM health news! In the US, there are over 20 million people with diabetes, equal to seven per cent of the population. The total costs are thought to be as much as $132 billion, with $92 billion being direct costs from medication, according to 2002 American Diabetes Association figures.  In Europe, an estimated 19 million people are affected by diabetes in the EU 25, equal to four per cent of the total population.

  4. Number of people with diabetes in United States increased to 24 million according to 2007 data by U.S. Center of Disease Control and Prevention.  About 57 million people have pre-diabetes. Diabetes is characterized by high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production (i.e., "insulin resistance" syndrome) that causes sugar to build up in the body.  "Insulin resistance" leaves excess sugar in the bloodstream, which damages small blood vessels in the eyes, kidneys, and other organs.

  5. Physicians long have known the importance of this vitamin in building strong bones. However, research is emerging that suggests vitamin D plays a much broader role in maintaining optimal health. Vitamin D may help in preventing and treating a growing number of health problems -- including diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, depression, chronic pain, migraines, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and certain types of cancers.
    At the same time, more people are at risk of being deficient in this essential nutrient than had previously been thought.

  6. "The most pressing issue for the 21st Century is nutrition, with obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disorders all linked to diet, and omega-3 will play a major role" (Dr. Dyerberg, Omega-3 pioneer).  According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), "in the last few years, experts have looked at omega-3s and asthma, cancer, the aging brain, dementia, neurological diseases, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, kidney disease, lupus, osteoporosis, eye health, mental health, and more".

  7. High triglyceride level is a threat to heart disease and diabetes.  Having triglycerides over 150 mg/dl and HDL cholesterol under 40 mg/dl, have a higher risk for heart disease.  High triglycerides are especially associated with insulin resistance -- a pre-diabetic state -- and diabetes.  Lifestyle changes such as normalizing your weight, dietary modifications, and exercise can lower triglyceride levels sufficiently.

  8. Nutrition is coming to the fore as a major modifiable determinant of chronic disease, with scientific evidence increasingly supporting the view that alterations in diet have strong effects, both positive and negative, on health throughout life (World Health Org 2003).  Dietary adjustments may not only influence present health, but may determine whether or not an individual will develop such diseases as cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes much later in life.
