(NaturalNews) U.S. life expectancy has dropped yet again, according to a report released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics. While overall life expectancy slipped from 77.9 years to 77.8 years, the report uncovered a surge of deaths from chronic lower respiratory diseases.

This report reveals a disturbing disconnect between the increasing money being spent on health care ("sick care") in the United States versus the lack of positive results we're getting in return. The U.S. health care system is the most expensive in the world, and yet life expectancy is falling while U.S. citizens are nowhere near the healthiest in the world.

So why is life expectancy falling?

Primarily because the U.S. health care system does nothing to prevent disease. It is a system based entirely on treating symptoms of disease -- "managing" disease -- rather than teaching people how to avoid disease through nutrition, foods and natural remedies.

In fact, the very idea of preventing disease and increasing life expectancy is strongly opposed by the medical system as well as the U.S. government:

• The conventional medical system thrives on disease and would lose money and power if fewer people were stricken with cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

• The U.S. government, facing financial bankruptcy due to its runaway entitled program obligations, actually saves money when people die younger. The younger people die, in other words, the less the government pays out under Medicare and social security programs.

The two largest organizations currently in charge of health care in America -- the government and the sick-care industry -- both have a financial incentive to keep Americans sick or to see them die earlier.

Your value to the sick-care machine is measured in dollars alone

This shocking economic reality never occurs to many people who still mistakenly assume that drug companies want people to get healthy (they don't) or that the government wants you to enjoy a long retirement (it doesn't).

From the sick-care industry's perspective, if you prevent disease, you are useless to them because you won't need their drugs, surgeries or chemotherapy. And from the government's point of view, you're useless as soon as you retire and stop paying taxes on your wages. At that point, you transition into a net financial drain on the government.

Obviously, you are the only person who benefits from your own good health. No corporation receives any benefit when YOU are healthy. No government receives any benefit, either. This is why no television ads or public service announcements will ever encourage you to prevent disease and live a long, healthy life. If you wish to pursue such a path, you must do it for your own reasons and in opposition to the agendas of the groups that are trying to keep you diseased.

This is why here at NaturalNews, we always seek to empower individuals to take charge of their own health, learn about nutrition and become independent thinkers who can dismiss the manipulations of Big Pharma or Big Government -- both of which are trying to keep you as sick as possible. To achieve lasting good health, a person must rebel against the system being shoved down Americans' throats: Junk food, mammograms, vaccines, radiation treatments, chemotherapy, prescription drugs and more. Those elements are merely designed to keep you trapped in a state of chronic degenerative disease so that doctors, drug companies and hospitals can extract as much of your money as possible before you expire.

That life expectancy is falling in the United States is not some random phenomenon. It is an artifact of the very design of our sick-care system -- a system in which human beings are considered profit-generating machines to be manipulated, misinformed and ultimately drugged or irradiated into a lifetime of chronic disease that generates outrageous profits for the sick-care industry.

The good news is you don't have to participate in that system. Instead, educate yourself about health and disease prevention by reading NaturalNews (and sharing it with others). We will continue to bring you independent, truthful news on natural remedies and cures that can keep you healthy and keep you out of the hospitals and doctors' offices that will only attempt to exploit your body for profit.

If you want to "live long and prosper," as Spock famously said, you'll need to pursue health truth and health freedom on your own. Keep reading NaturalNews, and we'll keep bringing you information that helps you rise above the sick-care system and experience a long, healthful life, free from the disease traps that have ensnared so many others.
