Carbohydrate dry weight was statistically significant increase above the median value. Minerals Calcium & Iron depletion greater than one standard
Inadequate Intakes from Food

Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, Summit on Integrative Medicine & the Health of the Public
- Lifestyle changes also can be reframed not only as preventing chronic diseases but also as reversing the progression of these illnesses...What we eat, how we respond to stress,... how much exercise we get, and the quality of our relationships... may be as powerful as drugs and surgery in treating (not just preventing) many chronic diseases
