Healthy Lifestyles on the Decline
Maybe it's that we are just plain lazy. Maybe it's that we believe in technology too much. We think it will save us from ourselves no matter what we do or don't do. Whatever the case, researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina have determined over the last two decades we have bailed on health - en mass.
The American Journal of Medicine found obesity has crept up in that time along with the incidence of chronic disease. We apparently just don't care and don't even want to try. We are apparently hell-bent on killing ourselves - and bitching about it in the meantime.
The fact is WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR HEALTH. However, the U.S health care system is also to blame. Even with all the talk about cutting health care costs, the system is set up to make money from your sickness not your wellness. There is no incentive to keep you well. The system delivers what it was intended to deliver - gobs and gobs of cash for Big Medicine, Big Pharma and Big Insurance.
Protect yourselves. Follow the virtually painless approach to life-long wellness and health. Reduce stress, eat primarily raw fruits and veggies (always organic live foods) and get some sun and exercise everyday. For what 'difficulty' you may have with this lifestyle, how tough is it to live with pain, disease and premature death?
