Healthy Aging and Foods


One hundred years ago, only 3 million people in this country were aged 65 or older.  Today, more than 36 million Americans are in this age group, and that number is expected to grow during the next 25 years to over 70 million as baby boomers age.

Scientists have learned that nutrition can have a major effect on the rate of degenerative disease. There are clear links between nutritional factors and risks of obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, cataracts and dementia. Good nutrition will continue to play an important role in health and the quality of life.

Additionally, a recent study supports that the dietary supplement industry could save billions of dollars in health care expenditure.
