Two out of every three deaths can be traced to nutrition related causes, dietary deficiencies or overweight conditions. The most prominent causes of death are heart attack, stroke and cancer. Other common health problems are diabetes, osteoporosis, fatigue, digestive problems, stress, headaches, and obesity. Every one of these are based around nutrition.

Over two million premature deaths each year are due to nutrition related diseases with over 70% of premature deaths and doctor visits being diet and nutrition related.

Some of the problems in in diets are deficiencies in fiber, vitamins and minerals, and trace elements, as well as excesses in total/animal fat, total calories. salt and sugar.

The body needs cellular nutrition to be healthy. Your body needs protein, minerals, oxygen and water to live properly. Both health and disease begin with the cell. The cells are the living units that create life. We need our cells to grow, reproduce, detoxify and function. If you don’t get key nutrition, the cell begins to break down. When enough cells break down, you start to feel the symptoms and if enough break down, it can lead to death.

What keeps cells from getting good nutrition? A certain amount of the problem can be traced to the way food is grown and harvested. Chemicals, fertilizers, over processing/over refining of foods- e.g. instant foods, high fat/sugar foods, foods that have been processed to make them tastier, have a longer shelf life, etc. all contribute to extra calories, salt and sugar and destroy vitamins and minerals.

We also keep our cells from getting good nutrition by the way we prepare our foods. We tend to over cook foods, thus taking away the minerals,vitamins and essential oils, robbing our bodies of the things that we need for proper health.

More than 60% of Americans choose to eat junk food, which is high in fat, sugar, salt and calories. It is almost devoid of any nutritional value.

BitWine has launched a site for those looking for nutrition advice.

The concept is simple, if you need advice about your nutrition you find an expert, who are a registered dietitians and then talk to them using Skype or other methods without even leaving the comfort of your own home. This is an excellent resource for those who may not fully understand the details of proper nutrition in your life.

To Your Health!
