Having a slim and healthy body is very much on people’s minds today. Most people think a healthy body is about being fit. In reality a healthy body is a combination of many factors, of which exercise is a small part. A healthy body is achieved not only with physical well-being but also with a healthy mental and spiritual attitude. The key to good health and a healthy body is directly related to what is put into that body and how the body is treated.
It’s horrifying to read the papers these days.
All sorts of terrible illnesses and conditions seem to be on the increase, despite the best efforts of medical technology.
It makes you wonder about the diets and lifestyle of modern man. We’ve got old evils like polio and tuberculosis under control in this country… but new ailments are on the rampage.
According to the organisation ‘Diabetes UK’, there are 1.8 million people with it. But there’s a million more who have it… but don’t even know it! What’s more, it gets more common as you get older. The average age of diagnosis for people with no family history of the illness is 52.
There are two basic types of diabetes…
“Type 1″ develops when the body is unable to produce any insulin. Sufferers need to take insulin to control their blood sugar levels.
“Type 2″ develops when you can’t produce enough insulin, or when the insulin that is produced does not work properly. This is the diabetes which usually appears in people once they pass 40 years old.
But I’ve got some good news for you. Protection from both kinds of diabetes can come in the form of a vitamin that’s not even a real vitamin!
“Why dead fish are the answer…”
