- Two out of three Americans choose long term ill-health.
Between 180 million to 200 million Americans carry 20 to 100 pounds of
extra fat on their bodies. They could care less about their health!
- Additionally, they don't care about their children's
health because they feed their kids the same gut-bulging, cholesterol producing,
and pancreas killing foods they feed themselves. They eat 'Happy Meals'
for diabetes, heart attacks and colon cancers! Obesity and high cholesterol
run wild in the ranks of U.S. children!
- Fox News said, "The fact that people are much
less physically active than in the past means that the ranks of the overweight
have swelled to nearly 70 percent in the U.S. this year (2010) from well
under 50 percent in 1980. In 10 years, a full 75 percent of Americans
will be overweight, making it "the fattest country in the OECD."

- As much as Americans scream about health care, they prefer
ill-health over good health. Americans know that overweight causes 1.5
million heart attacks annually, but they do not care as they load up on
bacon, sausage, eggs, hamburgers slathered in cheese, butter, whole milk,
double cheese pizzas, alcohol, soda pops and sweets every day. Junk and
processed foods dominate our breakfast, lunch and dinner tables.
- "About 86 percent of U.S. adults would be overweight
or obese by 2030 if current trends continue, according to a study led by
a Johns Hopkins University researcher and published in 2008 in the journal
Obesity," reported Fox News.
- After obesity, 47.8 million Americans smoke daily to
lead the charge toward early cancer deaths at 450,000 annually. That's
nearly one of every six Americans that try to kill themselves with lung
cancer, emphysema and related diseases. Even our own President Obama cares
so little for his health by continued smoking since his teen years!
- Another 10 to 15 million Americans dwell in the ranks
of 'alcoholic addiction'. They drink themselves into a daily stupor. Beyond
their own addiction, they beat up their wives, kids and each other at bar
fights. Over 30 million Americans drink and drive while another 10 million
inhale a joint while driving.
- Reporter Bill Hendrick of <http://www.webmd.com>www.webmd.com said,
"About 30 million Americans a year admit to driving while drunk, and
10 million more say they get behind the wheel when under the influence
of illicit drugs. On average, 13.2% of all people aged 16 and older drove
under the influence of alcohol in the past year, and 4.3% drove while on
illicit drugs, says a new survey from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Administration."
- That results in 18,000 American deaths by highway accidents
annually, but Americans won't pass any laws to effectively prevent drunk
driving, i.e., confiscate drunken drivers' cars, severe fines, along with
- On top of those preventable deaths, Americans breathe
and eat foods laced with hundreds of chemicals: factory farmed foods grown
with chemicals in the soil, over 80,000 human-made chemicals injected into
our air, land and water 24/7. Preservatives, dyes and synthetic sugars
like 'aspartame' contaminate our drinks and processed foods. "Sugar-free
means chemical sugars instead!" Soda pop rots our children's and our
teeth with carmel, sugars, sodium benzoate, aspartame, acids and red, brown,
yellow, orange, purple, blue dyes.
- Lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and colorectal
cancers kill 560,000 Americans annually, but you won't see anyone changing
their nutritional habits, exercise habits or personal choices.
- Over 900 Americans die by falling off their bikes without
a helmet every year! That's 2.5 deaths per day. A helmet would have saved
their lives. Do we mandate helmets for our kids? Of course not! Over
37,000 people die in highway accidents annually and a third do not wear
seat belts. They cannot be bothered.
- The question: Why the big fuss over Obama's egregious
health care bill? Why the uproar and anger? Why would so many people
get upset when over two-thirds of Americans choose obesity, no exercise
and unhealthy lives?
- Ironically, Americans spend $55 billion annually on trying
to keep people alive in the last 60 days of their lives. Unfortunately,
those are the same people that ate, smoked, drugged and drank themselves
into ill-health pile-ups at the end of their lives.
- Once they accelerate their own physical demise, they
expect a purple pill, aspirin, pain relief, surgery or a doctor to give
them a new heart, liver, or even suck all the fat out of their bodies.
- As the 80 million 'Baby Boomer' generation starts crashing
down onto our health care system, it will collide with reality! Obama-care
or 'any' care will not be able to deal with a huge percentage of 80 million
baby boomers that turned obese, drank and smoked themselves into consequences.
- Additionally, as we add 100 million people to this country
within 25 years, does anyone possess any idea of the enormity of our predicament
from sheer numbers? Answer: not a clue!
- WHAT CAN INDIVIDUALS DO FOR THEIR OWN HEALTH CARE?
- As a former cardiac catheterization medical technician,
I watched people's ill-health choices degrade their lives into heart attacks,
cancer and worse.
- Since my dad died at 46, I didn't want to follow the
same 'eating paradigm' that killed him. I changed my entire eating pattern
to vegetarian, no dairy and no junk food. I eat vegetables, grains, fruits,
nuts, cereals, tofu, tempeh and filtered water. I exercise 1.5 hours six
days a week, i.e., swim a half mile, bike 20 minutes, lift weights for
45 and run a mile. Then, stretch! I keep lean, clean, agile, mobile
and alert. You don't have time for 1.5 hours of exercise? Balderdash!
Stop watching TV which will free you up for at least two to four hours
a day! Television offers you nothing but a pot belly!
- As a civilization, we need to move back to a healthy
eating paradigm, organically grown foods and exercise. We need to stop
mass chemical spraying, fertilizers and processed foods! We need to clean
the air over our cities, and move toward clean energy to ensure clean air
with every breath.
- We need to take personal responsibility and accountability
for our health. By taking such actions across the USA, we could cut medical
care costs by 70 to 80 percent. Nature intended us to live healthy lives!
We must move back toward natural eating, exercise and living.
- Otherwise, no amount of health care will take care of
you when choose 'sickly eating' paradigms and 'sick-prone' lifestyles.
It's your call as to how you decide to live or die.
