CHIP is based on the fact that 75% or more of our Western diseases are "lifestyle related," according to the U.S. Surgeon General. These diseases are connected to our processed diet; lack of exercise; overuse of cigarettes, alcohol, and caffeine; increased levels of stress; and the quality of our support systems.
