We know food groups are the cause of most chronic diseases, because clinical interventions and epidemiology show they are prevented, halted or reversed when the food groups are removed.
The cause of death is not the same as the symptom. Current methods record symptoms (heart attack, stroke, blood sugar, dementia, etc.) that are explained in terms of vital signs and lab tests (risk factors: body mass, blood pressure, blood sugar, blood fat) and non-specific behaviors (diet, smoking, exercise).
Top 10 Causes of Death
- Cause of all chronic disease (except COPD) is animal food and processed food groups. Contribution of each food group is total chronic diseases (except COPD) divided by number of foods.
- Cause of COPD is primarily smoking.
- Coronavirus is separate cause, and not just complication of chronic diseases.
