In 2011, I was interviewed by the British newspaper The Guardian about the health benefits of raw fruits and vegetables. Here is an excerpt from my interview with the British news outlet:
"The average American adult consumes around 2,000 calories a day – a quarter of the recommended daily allowance. A study by the University of Iowa in Iowa City and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that adults with diabetes consumed less than half the recommended daily intake of vitamins B-6, B-12 and folate." I did my research for this article and I think it is pretty clear that we all have access to the right kinds of food at reasonable prices and all that. I am also quite certain that the right to health and longevity is not dependent on the wealth and status of your family. So, as the saying goes, "Wealth can't buy health." Now, how exactly does this fit into the world of health supplements? I'm going to give you the best piece of advice that I have ever heard in my life. It may not be as practical as it may sound, but it is the only way that I know of to protect your health while at the same time helping you build a sustainable lifestyle and achieve your goals.
