I am 65 years old. My blood pressure is 100/63, "the blood pressure of children and athletes." I weigh 159 pounds and I am 5' 9.5" tall. My cholesterol is 7.46 mmol/L, which is "dangerously high" according to the pharmaceutical industry which promotes and sells cholesterol lowering drugs. I bench press 50 pound dumbbells and workout three times a week when I do other things too. I am not the oldest person at the gym. I am not the youngest person at the gym. I am not the strongest person at the gym. I am not the weakest person at the gym. What am I? I am the most improved person at the gym: In 2000 I was in a coma after taking cholesterol lowering drugs prescribed by my doctors for 8 years. I weighed 115 pounds when I came home from the hospital. It has taken 12 years to recover. I recommend: exercise, Vitamin D, Juice PLUS+, seven to thirteen servings of fresh fruits and vegetables, and eight glasses of filtered water a day. It works for me. It works for others. It might work for you too. Keep it simple. Do it.
Good nutrition and exercise, not advertising, doctors and pharmaceuticals, is the answer to bad nutrition and your key to good health.
