Chilling Statistics: What Are We Doing To Ourselves And Our Children?
In four words, "we are killing ourselves." Each successive generation is sicker and more diseased than its predecessor. Autism, learning disabilities, ADHD, asthma, diabetes and many other diseases continue to skyrocket. No government agency has ever done, or will ever do anything about it except continue to compile statistics. You are our only hope, so here are the facts.
Think about how many government agencies we have that claim to strive for better health, food, safety, etc. We have the "National this", the "Federal that", the "Office of here", "Department of there" and the "Centers of Everywhere." We have so many agencies overseeing every single aspect of our lives and yet people are no safer or healthier than they were at any point in our recent history. On the contrary--they are in more danger and at a much greater risk of being in a prolonged state of illness.
The upper echelon and hierarchy that controls the most significant portions of our government wants us sick, and not just for a short period of time, but indefinitely. They want us addicted to pharmaceuticals as early as infancy and they want that dependence to last our entire lifetime. It's time to face the facts:
1 out of every 5 children has a learning disability
1 in 7 children has asthma
1 in 54 boys have Autism *
* Read about the inaccuracy of this statistic and how autism is actually much more common than claimed by the CDC
ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER (ADHD)
1 in 10 kids has ADHD
30 fold increase in childhood diabetes in the last 15 years
In the next 15 years, it is anticipated that the global incidence of type 2 diabetes in children
will increase by up to 50 percent.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
1 in 3 Adults has high blood pressure.

About 65 million American adults now have high blood
pressure -- 30 per cent more than the 50 million who did in the previous decade.
25% of women and 8% of men are now getting migraines sometime in their lifetime.
About half of these people get their first migraine before the age of 20,
and 98% before the age of 50. 5% get migraine before they're 15 years old, and about a third of those get migraine before they're even 5.
From 1999 to 2004 the prevalence of myopia was statistically and significantly 41.6% higher than it was 30 years ago.
Obesity rates in children have more than tripled in the last 30 years.
The percentage of children aged 6-11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 20% in 2008.
In 2008, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese. In a population-based sample of 5- to 17-year-olds, 70% of obese youth had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME (SIDS)
SIDS is the leading cause of death in children
between one month and one year of age.
Cancer and cardiovascular rates of disease are another story and the official statistics are neither accurate nor reflect the true state of these killer diseases among the population. Both of these diseases are huge money makers for the pharmaceutical industry so the incidence, diagnostic rates and deaths are all geared around propaganda more than anything else.
The bottom line is that preventable illness makes up approximately 80% percent of the burden of illness and 90% of all healthcare costs. It also accounts for eight of the nine leading categories of death. However, there is no money in prevention, only sickness. So our state of health will only get worse before it gets better, and it will only get better once the old paradigm of conventional medicine is long gone.
Until then you are our only hope. Educate as many people as possible on eating clean, non-GMO unprocessed foods. Incorporating superfoods, wild foods and microalgae into daily diets. Boosting common deficiencies like magnesium, iodine and crucial vitamin D from sunlight. Filtering tap water to obtain clean fluoride-free sources. Staying away from vaccines and pharmaceuticals. Most of all, reprogramming the mind and realizing that we are in a world that most of us have designed. It's time to redesign it!
