News released today that nearly 50% of American adults have high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol. All 3 of these are bad in and of themselves, but also strongly predispose to heart disease, the leading killer in the United States.
Dr. Steve Nissen from the Cleveland Clinic is quoted as saying, "These findings are disturbing and reflect the cumulative effects of the modern American lifestyle."
Our inattentiveness to healthy diets, lack of exercise and general disregard for our personal health is taking a toll. Where will we be a generation from now?
