Pattern of Disease

First Stage: The primal diet of plant eaters contains large amounts of unprocessed starch staples; there are few examples of chronic degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Second Stage: Commencing westernization of diet, obesity and diabetes commonly appear in privileged groups (rich, affluent who could afford eat).

Third Stage: with moderate westernization of the diet, constipation hemorrhoids, varicose veins, and appendicitis become common complaints.

Fourth Stage: finally, with full westernization of the diet, chronic degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, heart disease, cancer, etc., are extremely common.
