|We live in a very bewildering world. Accidents kill 4% of us.
Diseases kill 96%.
Each of the diseases that kill us are preventable. Not curable - but preventable.
Health insurance costs are increasing in America at almost 3 times the rate of worker's income. Therefore nearly 40 million people don't have health insurance. This means they don't go for checkups, physicals and screenings that would detect preventable and curable diseases. This means they don't see a doctor until they're coughing up blood, or their spouse calls 911. So the first doctor he/she sees is the Emergency Room doctor. Then they expect a miracle cure to drag them back from the portals of death.
Who is responsible for your health? You.
One out of every ten Americans can not name a single risk factor in diabetes. That's the crime. Lack of awareness, is the cause of lack of responsibility.
The Health Awareness Foundation's mission is to educate you about health. What causes disease and what prevents disease.
You don't catch these diseases that kill 96% of us from a door knob or a toliet seat- you cause these diseases by what you put in your mouth and/or what you don't put in your mouth.
Logically, how could it be anything else?
