David H. Murdock, is the 88 year old Chairman of Dole Food Company. Also, he writes a blog about healthy living for the Huffingtonpost.com.
Mr. Murdock believes that “food knowledge” is power. In a recent blog post he said:
“… my belief is that knowledge is power, and too many people feel powerless to know what they should eat for proper nutrition and thereby change their eating and exercise habits.”
Does this sound familiar to you?
Murdock goes on to give his keys to great health as:
- Eating lots of fruits and vegetables;
- Regular exercise, at least 4-5 times a week;
- Eating lots of fish;
- Drinking juice made of several different kinds of fruits and vegetables; and
- Enjoying a substantial breakfast each day.
However, Murdock admits that he hasn’t always eaten perfectly, during his long and successful life. Also, tragedy has touched his life several times. The loss of his wife to cancer, and two of his sons to accidents, made him keenly aware of the value of life. Thus, the importance of taking control of his health through knowledge.
Murdock concludes his post by saying:
Length of life means little without quality of life…”
