Staying Healthy
in an Unhealthy World

The average American eats
120 pounds of sugar a year
Weight and Women 1960-2010
The Obesity Crisis
Weight and Men 1960-2010
Obesity in Children 1960-2010
Today 33.3% of adults
are overweight.
35.9% of adults are obese.
Percent of children
age 2-5 years who
are obese:
Why are we so

Americans spend
$2.7 trillion on
healthcare per year.
We spend $190 billion
on obesity.
What do we get
for our money?
In 2012, we ranked 51st
in life expectancy...
behind Bosnia.
Ghrelin-a peptide secreted
by the stomach that
stimulates appetite
Leptin-a peptide secreted by fat cells. Decreased leptin promotes hunger.
Sleep loss leads to increased

and decreased
. This stimulates appetite and leads to weight gain.
Our Obesogenic Environment
Measuring overweight and obesity
BMI over 40 is extreme obesity
BMI 30 and above is obesity
BMI 25 to 29.9 is overweight
BMI 18.5 to 24.9 is normal weight
BMI less than 18.5 is underweight
Percent of adults who are physically inactive 2008
120 Pounds of sugar
The average teen who drinks
soda and energy drinks gets
about 327 calories or the
equivalent of 2 1/2 cans of soda.
CDC 2011.
About 52% of sugary drinks
are consumed at home. CDC.
Every 150 cal of sugar a day-
about 1 can of soda-is associated
with a 1.1% increase in the
incidence of diabetes.
Robert Lustig, UCSF
1 in 3 Americans born in 2000
will develop diabetes. JAMA.
Food Addiction
Newsflash: Scientists
create binge-eating
lab rats!
Xtreme Eating Dis-honorees
Why Obesity is so bad
The gateway drug
Normal molecule
Free Radical
Oxidative metabolism
BMI = Oxidative stress
Oxidative stress in fat cells causes systemic oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress
fatty liver
Increased oxidative stress in obesity and its impact on metabolic syndrome, Furukawa et al, Osaka University, J Clin Invest. 2004;114(12):1752–1761.
Antioxidants are
that neutralize
free radicals.
glutathione and superoxide dismutase.
Vitamin C, E, polyphenols, carotenoids including
beta-carotene...and many more.
Antioxidants can prevent oxidative damage to cells and can help repair damage.
Antonio Mancini, The Endocrine Society, 2010
NEAT: Non-Exercise
Mowing the lawn
burns 324 calories
an hour.
Eating 6 servings of fruits and vegetables a day cuts stroke
rate by 44% and eating 9 servings cuts stroke rate by 66%
Eating 5 servings of fruits
and vegetables a day cuts cardiovascular disease
risk by 12%
A review of 156 studies done around the world showed people who had the highest consumption of fruits and vegetables had a 2 to 3 fold decreased risk of developing most cancers compared to those who had the lowest
Rat study
Group 1: standard lab chow
Group 2: lab chow and unlimited
human food
Group 3: lab chow and restricted
access to human food
Addiction = decreased
dopamine receptors
The really bad news:

Delivers antioxidants and phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body
Reduces oxidative stress
Reduces biomarkers of systemic inflammation
Supports a healthy immune system
Helps protect DNA
Supports cardiovascular wellness
Supports healthy skin and gums
Clinical Research Shows
Juice Plus+®:
Over 16 years of peer reviewed and published clinical research
Juice Plus+®
is the most thoroughly
researched brand name nutritional
product on the market today.
Juice Plus+ improves insulin resistance in overweight boys

The Juice Plus+ group also showed a decrease in abdominal fat and significantly reduced triglycerides
One Clinical study shows
Juice Plus+® supports
cardiovascular wellness.
Seven Clinical Studies Show
Juice Plus+® Clinical Research Affiliations
Juice Plus+® helps protect DNA.
Two Clinical Studies Show
Juice Plus+® reduces biomarkers
of systemic inflammation.
Two Clinical Studies Show
Reduced a marker of oxidative stress due to exercise

Improved several indicators of immunity and inflammation
Medical University of Graz
2 studies showed reduced marker for oxidative damage to protein resulting from aerobic exercise and intense anaerobic exercise
University of North Carolina –
Bioavailable nutrition

Reduced markers of chronic systemic inflammation

Increased the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase
University of South Carolina

MD Anderson Cancer Center
Compared two diets:
10 servings of fruits and vegetables
5 servings + Juice Plus+® and Complete
Conclusion: 5-a-day with Juice Plus+® products equivalent to 10-a-day
The soy in Juice Plus+® Complete contributed to the better protein status in the Juice Plus+® group with no issues in these ovarian cancer survivors
New Clinical Study Shows
Juice Plus+® helps “bridge the gap.”
Reduction in markers of oxidative stress in heavy smokers

Reduction in oxidized LDL cholesterol
University of Milan
Juice Plus+® delivers key antioxidants and other phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body.
