Sure, one would say, but I have found this interesting statistics: "Cardiovascular Disease is considered an elderly disease, or a disease that attacks the majority of people (90%) after the age of sixty. Did you know that after billions of dollars spent on drugs and procedures in America we have only gained 6.46 years of life over the last 82 years (for those who live to the age of 60)? Yes, if you lived to be 60 in the year 1920 you could expect to live 15.54 years longer, and in 2002 if you lived to be 60 you could expect to live 22 years longer." So we gained 6.5 years with all that medications and surgeries. One would think we could have gained 20-30 years at least... Again, this statistics is talking about the elderly, who already made it up to 60 at least. A few extra facts: A) Animal fat consumption has dropped over 21% since 1910. B) Whole milk consumption has decreased 50%. C) The consumption of butter has decreased from 18 pounds per year to 4 pounds. D) Over the past 80 years, cholesterol consumption has increased a mere 1%. E) Vegetable oil consumption, including hydrogenated oils, has increased 437%. F) Sugar consumption has gone from 5 pounds per year in 1900 to 163 pounds per year today.
