I am aware that there are a myriad of “pet” projects which attract the attention of today’s society. For me they revolve around my two passions – my love of animals, and my love of nutrition, preventive health and wellness.
As previously mentioned it is impossible to support all the animal rescues and individual animal souls in critical need of medical attention.
On a totally different note we as Americans must come to grips with the fact that our future access to health care as we know it is questionable at best. Therefore, I propose that we become personally responsible for our own destiny related to health care. “The best way to treat disease is to prevent it.” My 40 year journey as a registered dietitian/nutritionist has lead me to realize that preventive health and wellness is the best option for every individual concerned with aging, preserving health and physical fitness. Given that a full 66% of Americans are overweight or obese, obesity is directly correlated with diabetes(diabesity) which invariably leads to heart disease – the number one killer in the US, addressing these lifestyle/preventable health issues is paramount in maintaining a high quality of life as we age.
My goal is to combine these two projects for the benefit of many. If you agree march on to be part of the solution.
