Mike Carruthers:
Do we really need to worry all that much about leading a healthy life? After all, life expectancy keeps going up.

 

Dean Ornish, M.D.:
Well actually life expectancy is not improving - it's actually starting to go down, finally. In the case of our kids this may be the first generation in which our kids live a shorter lifespan than their parents did - which is really pitiful.

_______________

 

Mike Carruthers:
Millions of Americans have chronic cough, chronic clearing of the throat and a host of symptoms that may all really be acid reflux.

 

Dr. Jamie Koufman:
It’s a great masquerader it is allergies that aren’t allergies, it’s sinusitis that isn’t sinusitis, it’s asthma that isn’t asthma and it certainly isn’t post nasal drip that wakes you up in the middle of the night – it’s reflux.

Mike Carruthers:
Good health is all about prevention and this cancer doctor is a big champion of the cause.

 

Dr. David Agus:
I’d look 2-3 times a week at someone in the eye and say I’ve got no more drugs to treat your cancer. I don’t want to do that anyone so I have a passion now to prevent disease. Being positive believe it or not is one of the dominant things we can do for our health.

Statistically, we live longer today than ever. In fact you might say some of us live too long.
