(Natural News) Many studies have established a clear link between obesity and increased risk of cancer. A sedentary lifestyle, high alcohol intake and a junk food diet all contribute to obesity. One of the most direct causes of weight gain, however, is consuming drinks and processed foods that are high in sugar.

- Reflect On:The average American consumes their body weight annually in this cancer-causing substance, and yet hospitals freely feed it to their cancer patients, seemingly oblivious to the harm it does.
Hospitals feed cancer patients sugar and high carbohydrate diets for a simple reason: they are abysmally ignorant of the role of nutrition in health and disease — hence their burgeoning growth, packed rooms, and ‘return customers.’
(NaturalHealth365) The use of refined sugar has skyrocketed in America – and its overconsumption has placed an enormous burden on the immune system. Yet, the news you’re about to read is never mentioned in the lamestream media.
Historically speaking, in the early 1800s, the average American’s sugar consumption hovered at a modest few pounds over the course of an entire year. But, now, yearly sugar intake has soared to 155 pounds! There’s no doubt: this increase is directly connected to horrible health outcomes.
(NaturalHealth365) Despite what some “gurus” would have you to believe – living a healthy lifestyle isn’t really that complicated. Even if you’re on a limited budget, you don’t need anything that ‘fancy’ to increase your ability to live a longer, happier life.
Animals are a precious gift to humanity, and we have so many lessons to learn from them. If you were an empathetic, benevolent alien looking down on planet Earth, no doubt you’d be heartbroken at and terrified of the way we treat animals. We slaughter them by the billions, destroy their homes, experiment on them, and worse. That being said, the ‘good’ side of humanity loves animals, and there are a lot of activist efforts out there that are speaking up for those who do not have a voice, not to mention the ever growing movement promoting a plant-based diet. We are making progress.
