Should diet changes come before prescriptions?
Everything is wrong:
○ 70% of Americans are on prescription drugs■ 69% Percent of adults are overweight or obese■ 31% of adults have high blood pressure■ 33.5% of adults have high LDL or “bad” cholesterol
Everything being wrong is expensive:
■ Costs of obesity-related illness: $190.2 billion/yr   ● 21% of annual medical spending in the United States   ● Price tag for childhood obesity: $19,000 per kid   ● If current trends continue obesity spending will quadruple to $344 billion by 2018■ Costs of High blood pressure: $47.5 billion/yr   ● Reducing sodium intake from 3,400mg to 2,300mg per day may reduce cases of high blood pressure by 11 million and save 18 billion/yr■ Costs of cholesterol medications: $18.7 billion/yr   ● High cholesterol is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and specifically for coronary heart disease (CHD).   ● Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S
Healthcare costs are high because pills are expensive:
■ The United States spends far more per capita on medicines than other developed countries■ Drugs account for 10 percent of the country’s $2.7 trillion annual health bill● Should simple diet changes comes before prescriptions?   ○ A vegetarian diet can reduce blood pressure by about half the drop expected from medication   ○ Eating vegetarian is cheaper than buying pills■ Plus you get the beneficial side effects of:● Lower cholesterol● Weight loss   ○ The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) eating plan to lower blood pressure by up to 10 points:

And God said unto Abraham, “Abraham.”

And Abraham replied, “What.”

God said to John, “Come forth and receive eternal life.” But John came fifth and won a toaster.

And Judas approached the rabbis and Pharisees saying, “The one whom I kiss is the one you seek.”

To which they responded, “Gay.” 

And thus, god made Eve. And she was bammin’ slammin’ bootylicious.

see you all in hell
