A Simple Path To Prevention"You are what you eat...You are what you drink...You are what you have done"
If you want to slow the aging process, inside and out, prolong and enhance the quality of your life by reducing cancer, heart disease, stroke, and other degenerative diseases, then follow these basic rules as your FOUNDATION FOR GOOD HEALTH.
- Fresh, raw or minimally cooked vegetables, fruits, and grains 9-10 servings per day.

- Low fat diet: Less than 20% of total calories per day. (More OMEGA-3 fats such as those in freshwater fish such as salmon, and olive oils.) Avoidance of the oils we thought were "safer" such as cornoil, cannola oil, safflower oil, etc. is best.
- Low cholesterol diet: Less than 300 mg per day.
- Maintain ideal body weight (IBW) and reduce total calories.
- Maintain ideal body fat: Males < 16%; Females < 22%.
- High fiber and less refined carbohydrates.
- Aerobically - 30 minutes daily
- Light Weights - 20 minutes daily
Religious Commitment and Spirituality
Prayer, faith, religious commitment and spirituality significantly prevent and reduce disease and prolong life.
100 OUNCES of filtered water per day with no chlorine retains minerals.
- Sunscreen daily on the face or any exposed areas is essential. A good sunscreen should adequately block a broad spectrum of UVA and UVB rays, the UVA ones being the most damaging to the skin causing aging and more cell damage.
- Vitamin C is essential to healthy skin as it acts as an antioxidant and offers protection from the sun as well.
- Cleansing twice daily with an effective cleanser also promotes healthy skin.
- Following the above regimen with diet and adequate water intake is essential for healthy skin. For a good source on diet, nutrition, and healthy skin, consider reading Nicholas Perricone's book, The Wrinkle Cure.
