The Functional Food Foundation is dedicated to raising funds to advance the development, distribution, and accessibility of functional foods for everyone. Functional Foods are those that do more than mere nutrition. They aid in the treatment or prevention of disease. The bad news: over one-third of Americans suffer from chronic disease which is caused by food. The great news: 80% of those people can treat or prevent those diseases by Functional Food. Type II Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Obesity, Arthritis, and certain Cancers fall into this category.
