Food Pyramid

Eating healthy foods is one of the greatest ways you can live healthy and combat developing a disease. Some diseases are genetic and there's not much you can do about that. But others like Diabetes 2, Lung Cancer, and Heart Disease and might be prevented with the proper diet. Below is a picture of a food pyramid.

The Food Pyramid illustrates the research-based food guidance system developed by USDA and supported by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
