The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with NUTRITION. (Thomas Edison)
Health literacy means that you can understand information about your health, so you know how to take care of yourself and make good decisions.
According to the National Assessment of Adult Literacy, nearly nine out of ten adults may lack the skills needed to manage their health and prevent disease. Improving health literacy reduces health care costs and increases the quality of life and well-being.
