Each year millions of people are affected by serious infections and chronic, sometimes fatal, diseases. Two of today's leading causes of death in America are heart disease and cancer. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease was the cause of 654,092 deaths in 2004. Cancer was responsible for 550,270 deaths that same year. It is estimated that cancer is responsible for one in four deaths. Stroke, respiratory diseases, and blood diseases are also found to have high death rates each year in America.

While it may be that these conditions are associated with heredity or specific lifestyle choices, it is also known that exposure to certain variables, like a toxic environment or taking a prescription drug or food supplement that causes adverse side effects, can also play a major role. In other cases, negligence and misdiagnosis can play a role in certain conditions and diseases.
