In this 21st century we find people suffering and dying from chronic degenerative diseases, which include artery disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes, arthritis, macular degeneration, cataracts, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis and the list goes on and on.
Thanks to the discovery of antibiotics and advances in their development during the second half of this century, deaths due to many infectious diseases had reduced dramatically. Today many suffer from many diseases and so they are living too short, where the life expectancy has been reduced and they are dying too long with the dreadful diseases with the help of medications.
There is a saying that ‘Food is the medicine and medicine should not be our food. Physicians and insurance companies have placed all their hopes in drugs as the way to approach and hopefully slow down this epidemic of chronic degenerative diseases.
