New #1 KILLER of Seniors (SHOCKING)
For years, heart disease has been the #1 cause of death right here in the U.S… and across the globe.
This harrowing disease has taken the lives of millions of folks, most of them seniors.
But this may not be the case for much longer.
According to a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, there’s a new KILLER on the rise.
Here’s what you need to know to stay safe.
Researchers examined the death records of 32 million adults in more than 3,000 countries between 2003 and 2015. Final results were broken down by country.
In 2003, heart disease was the leading cause of death in 79% of the counties.
But by 2015, heart disease was the leading cause of death in just 59% of counties.
Cancer was the leading cause of death in the rest of the counties.
While these were the #1 and #2 causes of death, the heart disease mortality rate still decreased by 28% between 2003 and 2015. And the cancer mortality rate dropped by 16% during that same time period.
This tells us two things.
First, we’re moving in the right direction, as both of the top causes of death are declining.
Second, since the cancer death rates aren’t dropping as quickly, it means that it won’t be long before cancer overtakes heart disease as the #1 killer in the country.
So now that we know this information, what should we do about it?
Whether you’re trying to stay ahead of cancer OR heart disease, my advice is the same. It starts with fixing your environment and making a few key lifestyle changes.
Here’s what I’d suggest:
- Cut out the processed foods. Junk foods wreak havoc on your body for all sorts of reasons. The most obvious being that it increases your risk of weight gain. And being overweight increases your risk of heart disease and cancer.
- Cut back on sugar. High blood sugar levels increase your risk of diabetes, a major factor in heart disease. And cancer feeds on sugar.
- Stop eating factory-farmed meat. It is pumped full of hormones and other toxic chemicals.
- Buy organic. It’s more expensive, but well worth it because of what you’re NOT getting: toxic, cancer-causing herbicides and pesticides.
- Get plenty of morning sunlight. This helps set your circadian rhythm for the day, which helps ensure that all of your body’s systems are functioning at their peak.
- Limit your exposure to blue light at night.
And keep reading this e-letter.
New studies are always coming out about ways to reduce your risk of these top killers. I scour leading journals to bring you the latest information that will give you practical ways to stay ahead of the curve.
To a brighter day,

Heart disease, colon cancer, and diabetes are three of the killers of American seniors.
