Where Are The Headlines?
I was reading from the National Center for Health Statistics which are put together by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The most up-to-date figures which the CDC offers on Causes of Death in the United States were from the 1998 (Source: National Vital Statistics Report, Vol. 48, No. 11). The number of deaths in America that year were calculated to total 2,337,258. The Death Rate figured out to 471.7 deaths per 100,000 population.
Here are the 10 Leading Causes of Death in the U.S.:
If you look carefully, you will notice that I have highlighted Heart Disease and Cancer. And it is for a very good reason ..Together, those two dreaded diseases killed 1,266,391 Americans IN ONE YEAR. That total is equivalent to the combined populations of Alaska, Wyoming and Vermont. Where are the blazing headlines????
Let's look at another analogy----Something a little closer to America's heart (no pun intended)----the recent tragedies of September 11th and beyond. A total of four Airline Jumbo Jets crashed at the hands of terrorists on September 11th , killing all aboard. And then, in early November, another Jumbo Jet mysteriously crashed in New York City-again killing all passengers on board. Each of these five Plane crashes were devastating, not only to the loved ones of the victims, but also to America itself. Press coverage was overwhelming and calls for action were high-pitched and demanding.
From the above statistics, if you filled a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet to capacity (300 people) and computed into airline crashes the number of deaths resulting from Heart Disease and Cancer, you would have 4,088 Jumbo Jet crashes PER YEAR. That would be over 11 Jumbo Jets falling out of the sky EVERY DAY.
And where are the National Headlines as to this "UNNECESSARY" Death? Where are the calls to action? Where is the Press coverage as to the effects of the Standard American Diet on people's health and longevity? Why aren't McDonald's (and its clones), Coca-Cola and the Food Processers/Refiners being vilified like the Tobacco industry currently is?
All you hear is the occasional newspiece on Heart Disease and Cancer with the usual Surgery, Chemo and Radiation recommendations and the kicker to "eat right and exercise."
The purpose of 7 Essentials to Health is to inform (scream from the rooftops) that these two diseases ARE PREVENTABLE. Even if you have genetic markers for either disease or both, you can avoid the devastation which they cause. You must do everything in your power to avoid stressing these weak links in the body. After all, you cannot break a chain unless you stretch it past its breaking point.
And how do you avoid stressing the body---by making Smart, Healthy Choices concerning the 7 Essentials to Health. And that begins with consuming Whole, Unrefined foods and supplementing your diet with Quality Whole Food Nutritionals (the 7 Essentials Pack). Each day I consume my "Essentials" (four years and counting), I look at them as direct deposits in my HEALTH ACCOUNT.
