New research out of the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill shows that one in three people would risk having a shorter life rather than having to take a daily pill.
Almost one in five said they would pay $1,000 or more to avoid taking a pill each day for the rest of their lives, but 43 percent said they wouldn’t pay any amount.
Study participants were asked to ignore any costs or potential side effects associated with taking the hypothetical life-extending pill, and still many people would rather not take a pill for the rest of their life.
Daily pill vs. changing the foods that you eat?
What I’d personally rather know is how many of us would take even a baby step toward changing what we eat if we knew it would increase our life span and also improve our quality of life at the same time – with the side effects being easier weight loss, more brain clarity, better sleep, and less physical discomfort?
Patients arrive at my clinic suffering from a host of chronic issues that might include constipation, diarrhea, sinusitis, migraines, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis or other autoimmune disease, or more. We do a complete overhaul of their diet, and yes, it’s hard for the first couple of weeks. But by the end of the first month or so it seems normal to eat this way, and the difference in how their bodies feel and work is noticeable.
It’s a way to improve and extend your life without becoming a customer-for-life of a pharmaceutical company.
