The major seven diseases are known to kill 80% of the world population. These diseases will send many people to the grave earlier than expected. Here is a list of these deadly diseases according to the National Center for Health Statistics: heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis and Alzheimer’s
These diseases cause a lot of suffering to the affected patients. The diseases can be prevented by various methods such as natural substances and workouts. It has been proven from biochemistry that large doses of the natural substances can also reverse and heal the affected people.
Root of these diseases
The major cause of these seven diseases is the free radical damage. The free radicals are produced as the by-products when oxygen is metabolized in the living tissues. The metabolized oxygen is used in powering our bodies.
Significance of the free radical
The oxygen free radicals play a major role in our bodies. They help the body by burning refuse matter and harmful bacteria. However, when the production of these radicals is out of control, their levels accumulate in the bodies and become toxic. Accumulation of these free radicals to toxic levels triggers an oxidative process which damages the body.
The free radical is measured in units known as Oxidation hits. Our bodies have a protective defense system for protecting us from the effects of free radical. The onslaught of the free radical molecules could result in aging and chronic disease.
What weakens our body’s defense system?
Many practices and factors make our bodies weak making it unable to ward off the effect of the free radicals. Exposure to free radicals in the air also weakens our defense system.
External sources of free radicals
Other sources include exposure to radiations from microwaves, electromagnetic waves, computer monitors, copy machines, television sets e.t.c Soil depleted of the micro minerals, shipping and harvesting of products before ripening, consumption of highly refined food products and use of chemical additives.
Smoking is also another source of free radicals. Environmental pollution affects the quality of food produced. When the quality of food supply is poor, the levels of free radicals increases leading to diseases and oxidative stress.
Effect of oxidation stress
When the attack takes place in the arteries, calcium and cholesterol heal the wound. This healing of the arteries causes them to harden and causes high blood pressure. Arthritis develops when the joints are attacked.
Attack of the pancreas leads to diabetes. On the neurons, the attack leads to multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s. The damage caused by the free radical is associated with the different types of cancer.
