It is estimated that by 2020, chronic disease will be responsible for 75% of all deaths in the world. Not only is it costing us our lives, but the U.S. is also reported to have spent approximately $2 trillion on public and private health care, the majority of which is spent on the chronic disease burden alone.

Sadly, the healthcare system responds to the disease burden by relying heavily on prescription medications that come with a list of dangerous side-effects, such as weakening the immune system, a whole host of neurological problems and even increasing thoughts of suicide.
To stay on the safe side and keep these side-effects at bay, throw away these drugs and do some dietary and lifestyle changes instead. There`s turmeric, too!
