The disturbing image of the apple with skull and crossbones is often used to depict the use of pesticides,chemicals, and preservatives or genetic manipulation of our food supply.
I am using this “apple” image to depict the fact that 68% of our population has the genes for the apple body shape and this shape is linked to MANY health complications such as: type 2 diabetes, PCOS, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, elevated LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, Alzheimer’s disease, colon, breast, ovarian, prostate cancer and more. This is the shape that is contributing to the epidemics of obesity and diabetes. And it is a shape that quickly signals the need to DO SOMETHING NOW!
The statistics are beyond alarming. There are epidemics of obesity and diabetes with no end in sight. Read this article. Not for the numbers, but for the conclusion. It’s time to stop acknowledging a deadly epidemic and start taking very real steps to reverse it.
