Why were people so much healthier 150 years ago?

“Analysis of the mid-Victorian period in the U.K. reveals that life expectancy at age 5 was as good or better than exists today, and the incidence of degenerative disease was 10% of ours” as outlined by Paul Clayton and Judith Rowbotham in the paper “How the Mid-Victorians Worked, Ate and Died“.  How could this be?  Hasn’t the common knowledge been that the average life expectancy was only 40 years old?  That poor diet resulted in horrible diseases and illnesses?  Apparently once again the common knowledge is wrong, and has helped lead to the flawed nutritional guidelines promoted by our government. Not to mention the fixation on high-carb/low-fat diets which are slowly destroying the health of our nation.

If you are concerned about your health, take the time to research alternatives such as low-carb diets, primal fitness blueprints, and a return to our natural diet and physical activity.

A good primer that I can recommend is “The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy (Primal Blueprint Series)”
