Prevented or minimised conditions

People living in the Modern Era experience unprecedented levels of stress, highly burdened immune systems and illnesses. Some very irritating but not debilitating conditions also result. All of these conditions can be prevented, minimised or treated through diet alone.
Below is a list of these conditions along with links to web sites detailing their symptoms and diagnoses. Also included are links to web sites (or references) explaining how these conditions are caused by diet.


To read more about how these conditions and/or their symptoms can be prevented/minimised/treated through diet alone read Janine Schott's book titled The Epigenetics of Diet, available at http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/24306.
