The Center for Disease Control reports
that between 1980 and 2010, the percentage of people living with obesity in the US doubled among adults and tripled among children. Unfortunately, obesity is one of the many chronic conditions on the rise in our country. Nearly one in two adults in the US live with at least one chronic condition. Even more alarming are the rising rates in chronic conditions among children.
"The numbers are indeed grim, but there is good news: the increase in chronic diseases is because of a lifestyle choice and the changing environment," says Nicole Magrta
We address chronic disease through lifestyle and diet. Beyond food selection, Americans need to understand how food is handled and produced. To do this, we must educate ourselves about the ever-changing landscape of the agricultural and food industry in America. Nicole's book does that, and so much more. From taking a look at the diet-disease connection and ancient answers to modern problems to providing plentiful recipes, Nourish Your Tribe
, is an essential tool that all American's should take advantage of.
"Teaching children good nutrition empowers them to respect their most precious gifts: their minds and their bodies. I want to empower my children with the wisdom to nourish themselves with healing foods and to be aware of their body's voice. Don't you?
