The One Cause of Disease?

The best way to think of the cause of disease is as a combination or an accumulation of many factors that has eventually lead the body to break down. With few exceptions, disease does not appear overnight. Disease tends to develop slowly, usually over several years, as subtle signs that are often ignored.

“Doctors talk about risk factors as things that you do, or are done to you, that increase your chance of developing a disease. To establish risk factors, researchers look at people who have developed a certain disease for shared features like age, race, living habits, environmental exposures, commingling diseases, genetic defects, and family history.” –  Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
