Chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis are among the most preventable.
The distribution of Healthcare costs in the United States may not be the most ideal. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) the United States allocates as much as 75% of funds toward the treatment of chronic disease and only 3% towards prevention. This is a staggering number since chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis are the most preventable.
An in depth literature review conducted by the Council for Responsible Nutrition demonstrates that the use of dietary supplements among those of high risk for chronic disease can be an effective preventative method. This may be for both billions of dollars of health care cost savings and a better quality of life for the individuals taking them (Frost & Sullivan.)
