"Ours is a sick-care system, and until we understand and value the role of nutrition and specific nutrients in preventing disease processes (not to mention the role of environmental toxins and the impact of endocrine disruptors on nuclear receptors), it won't be fixed. We can argue, blame, name-call, damn the insurance companies, or whatever, but the bottom line is that chronic diseases will continue to grow exponentially as they have over the last 30 to 40 years. Vitamin D3 deficiency, for example, appears to be related to the pathology of at least 17 different cancers. It converts to the most potent steroid hormone in the human body and nobody does anything with this information. Accumulation of toxins and chemicals are directly related to obesity/diabetes, according to extensive research. Why don't we know this?? It's simple...true disease prevention is not profitable. This is the crux of the problem."
