      Randy C. Wilson presents:  Long Live You, The Quest For Longevity

      Randy's Bio:  Nearly 20 years ago, Randy C. Wilson began a quest to learn
      about how food effects our bodies. Because of a certain
      mysterious skin condition that he linked to a certain ingredient in the
      typical food he was eating, he realized that there must be a lot of food
      out there with ingredients that are harmful to us. This experience sparked
      his passion to learn about the many things in our food, water and air that
      are detrimental to us physically and mentally. Six years ago, Randy chose
      to adopt a vegetarian lifestyle because he realized that cutting meat out
      of his diet would not only reduce the chance of contracting commonly known
      chronic illnesses like heart disease, diabetes and cancer, but it is also
      a healthier choice for our planet and our psyche.  Today, as the Founder
      of The Long Live You Foundation, a
      non-profit organization, Randy C. Wilson has set out to teach others how
      to make healthier lifestyle choices with the goal of helping the world
      become a better place by helping humans become a healthier race.
