A Message from Founder Dr. Myron Wentz
We have forgotten what it is like to die of old age in this world. Instead, we die of man-made diseases that could and should be prevented. Statistics tell us that one in three people will die of cancer, one in three will prematurely die as a result of heart disease and most of the rest will die of either another form of disease or by accidental death. Only a few of us will die of old age.
I find it tragic that the vast majority of people leave this earth too soon and spend too many of their years in pain and suffering. Chronic degenerative diseases are rampant throughout the world. Both of my parents died prematurely. My father succumbed to heart disease when I was 17 years old, and my mother died several years ago of cancer. When my father died, I remember my mother saying to me that she wished I could have done something to help him.
We now know that optimal nutrition is key to long-term good health. Unfortunately, the high level of nutrition that is necessary to maintain good health is difficult to receive from the typical modern diet. And, the nutritional supplement industry was filled with incomplete, unbalanced products. This discovery led me to found USANA Health Sciences in 1992 in order to develop advanced nutritional formulations and manufacture premier nutritional supplements. Today, I believe that with the USANA Health Sciences products, people can live healthier lives, and I’m excited about sharing this good news with others.
USANA customers can be assured that they are providing the cells of their bodies with the right kind and the right amounts of nutrients. Together, the USANA family has become a global force with a unique vision of helping people adopt the healthy lifestyle that USANA products support. I dream of a world free from pain and suffering. I dream of a world free from disease. The USANA family will be the healthiest family on earth. Share my vision. Love life and live it to its fullest in happiness and health.
