All these diseases are partially a result of improper diet, rich in refined sugar, refined grains and trans acids.
These products lead to the development of disease and premature aging, namely the deposition of their metabolites in cells causes apoptosis-collapse of the cell. They offer no nutrients required for the body for optimum function (because it does not lead us to optimal weight loss) and they can simultaneously threaten health: refined sugar leads to reduced immune function, refined grains leads to increased blood glucose and fat to the emergence of harmful cholesterol and heart disease.
