The Epic Study

This post is very simple and to the point. Start by reading the last 2 lines of the study above. It says:


Our objective was to describe the reduction in relative risk of developing major chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer associated with 4 healthy lifestyle factors among German adults.


We used data from 23,153 German participants aged 35 to 65 years from the European Prospective Investigation Into Cancer and Nutrition-Potsdam study. End points included confirmed incident type 2 diabetes mellitus, myocardial infarction, stroke, and cancer. The 4 factors were never smoking, having a body mass index lower than 30 (calculated as weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared), performing 3.5 h/wk or more of physical activity, and adhering to healthy dietary principles (high intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain bread and low meat consumption). The 4 factors (healthy, 1 point; unhealthy, 0 points) were summed to form an index that ranged from 0 to 4.


During a mean follow-up of 7.8 years, 2006 participants developed new-onset diabetes (3.7%), myocardial infarction (0.9%), stroke (0.8%), or cancer (3.8%). Fewer than 4% of participants had zero healthy factors, most had 1 to 3 healthy factors, and approximately 9% had 4 factors. After adjusting for age, sex, educational status, and occupational status, the hazard ratio for developing a chronic disease decreased progressively as the number of healthy factors increased. Participants with all 4 factors at baseline had a 78% (95% confidence interval [CI], 72% to 83%) lower risk of developing a chronic disease (diabetes, 93% [95% CI, 88% to 95%]; myocardial infarction, 81% [95% CI, 47% to 93%]; stroke, 50% [95% CI, -18% to 79%]; and cancer, 36% [95% CI, 5% to 57%]) than participants without a healthy factor.


Adhering to 4 simple healthy lifestyle factors can have a strong impact on the prevention of chronic diseases.

CONCLUSION: Adhering to 4 simple healthy lifestyle factors can have a strong impact on the prevention of chronic diseases.

In the “Epic Study” of 23,000 people the following TRUTHS were uncovered:

By participating in these 4 behaviors:

1. Not smoking
2. Moderate exercise
3. Healthy BMI (under 30)
4. Healthy Diet

The participants achieved these outcomes:

1. 93% of Type 2 Diabetes prevented
2. 81% Heart Attacks prevented
3. 50%  Strokes prevented
4. 36% ALL Cancers prevented

Wow! Who would not want those benefits? YOU can achieve the same great results. All you have to do is … D-E-C-I-D-E.

Of course, even after deciding and wanting such benefits, many people need help. It’s very simple to see these results. It may even be an easy decision to make. But it’s NOT always easy to do. That’s where we come in. If you are ready to lose weight, feel great and work toward much LOWER risks like those seen in the Epic Study simply call, click or just come in!
