US life expectancy falls as failure of conventional medicine becomes obvious

Life expectancy

(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.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
