In the twenty-first century, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity have become the most prevalent health issues in the United States. Our current healthcare system seeks to treat a disease after it has been diagnosed, rather than prevent and/or reverse it. A thorough analysis of the meteoritic rise in chronic disease proves a direct correlation between these diseases and an individual’s food and lifestyle choices. The rise in the production and consumption of processed food is the root cause for the increase in the rates of chronic disease. A whole food plant based diet, consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains, has shown to prevent chronic disease and it’s symptoms. By simply cutting meats, dairy, and processed foods from one's diet, the chances of leading a healthy lifestyle increase exponentially.
