  1. Shaving 3 grams off the daily salt intake of Americans could prevent up to 66,000 strokes, 99,000 heart attacks and 92,000 deaths in the United States, while saving $24 billion in health costs per year, researchers reported (Reuters Life, Jan 2010).

    Less salt means lower blood pressure and less disease. According to experts' report from the Institute of Medicine, in 2005, high blood pressure (hypertension) was responsible for one-in-six deaths in the United States. Hypertension harms the heart, brain, and kidneys.

  4. 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. Much of this healthcare spending can be tied to preventable health problems. Here are some examples of preventable health problems: The largest numbers of deaths in the United States are caused by two preventable causes - tobacco smoking and high blood pressure - killing an estimated 467,000 and 395,000 people respectively in 2005.

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.

  6. 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.

  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.
