Western diets cause strokes, says American Heart Association

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

The American Heart Association remains years behind the curve when it comes to recognizing links between nutrition and heart disease, but they've taken a recent step forward by announcing that the Standard American Diet is now known to cause strokes.

This western diet is one of processed foods, red meat, refined carbohydrates, food additives, junk foods, snack foods, soft drinks, fried foods and similar substances. It makes up a reported 30% of the average American's diet (alarming!).

In reality, this diet causes far more than just strokes: it also causes cancer, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer's disease, clinical depression, and a long list of other chronic diseases. The western diet is the #1 cause of all chronic disease.

Avoiding chronic disease is relatively simple, believe it or not: just avoid all processed foods, refined carbohydrates, added sugars, and so on. Then supplement your diet with superfoods (like chlorella, my favorite superfood) in order to receive optimum nutrition. Your risk of ever being diagnosed with cancer, diabetes or other chronic disease will quickly approach zero.
