One: buy a scale.
Obesity is a huge killer and it sets the stage for Type 2 diabetes, heart attack and hypertension. Be a smart consumer. Step on the scale each day so there are no surprises about weight gain. Count calories to live healthier and longer.
Two: buy a pedometer to count steps.
Ships tied up at a dock too long get barnacles. To avoid medical barnacles, walk 10,000 steps a day. There’s no need to run the four minute mile. Remember, lions don’t buy Nike running shoes. Besides, studies show excessive exercise can cause medical problems.
Three: avoid needless radiation.
A single CT scan delivers the same radiation as 500 chest X-rays or 1,000 dental ones. Always ask if an ultrasound or an MRI can obtain the same medical information without the risk of radiation. Like the elephant’s memory, the body never forgets the amount of radiation it receives in a lifetime.
Four: avoid ‘pillitis’ like the plague.
Every day North Americans are programmed for sickness by pharmaceutical companies. We’ve become the most over-medicated society in history and not the healthiest. Look around you. Every year in North America 100,000 people die from prescription drugs. More thousands die from over-the-counter medications, many of which are not needed. Too many people swallow minor painkillers and other drugs as if they were M and M candy. They’re headed for kidney and liver problems without knowing it.
Five: look after your heart with Vitamin C and Neo40
I believe I’ve reached my 94th year by taking high doses of Medi-C Plus powder (4,000 to 6,000 milligrams daily). I believe the science behind Vitamin C makes more sense than that of cholesterol-lowering drugs (CLDs). Dr. Linus Pauling stressed that a lack of Vitamin C caused microscopic cracks in coronary arteries which can trigger a fatal blood clot. Vitamin C and the addition of lysine, a natural amino acid, also help to reverse hardening of arteries that kills…
