This is my appeal to the people of the planet to stand up and start believing in themselves. This is my calling for each who read this to recognize that you are under direct attack and need to begin defending yourself diligently. The point is that you are being killed, much like cattle in a slaughterhouse. Let me tell you a few facts:
There are over 20 million diabetics in the United States, with more than a million new cases reported every year. There are another 57 million people, in the US alone, who experts believe are pre-diabetic. Obesity rates, in the US and some other advanced societies, are increasing exponentially and are already at all-time record high levels. Health care professionals classify over 25% of all Americans as "completely sedentary."
We consume foods that are deep-fried, fried, loaded with saturated and trans-fats, bleached, processed, prepared, microwavable, loaded with sodium, lacking in nutrients and otherwise completely unworthy of meeting our lips. We have become a grotesquely fat and lazy people. Now, let me tell you exactly why:
The United States government hates you - all of you.
It's so true. You must learn to view life from the vantage point the government has. You see, from the years of 1946 to 1964, the birth rate, in the US, was more than twice what it was before or since. These were the years of the Baby Boomers. Currently, Boomers comprise more than ¼ of the entire US population. Now, in 2009, these Boomers are retiring - and the government hates it. Here's why: currently, it takes more than 3 workers in America to support each retired person. That ratio will significantly lessen over the next 3 decades. Here's what that will cause:
The costs associated, with health care, for the masses, will dramatically increase. The saving rate correspondingly decreases. Social security and Medicare expenses will increase exponentially while funding for them will bottom out. Productivity per person will decrease. Workers will be unmotivated, as their taxes increase, more and more, to accommodate these skyrocketing expenses. In turn, here's what leading economists predict will happen:
The US government will begin selling huge amounts of Treasury Bonds - and the Chinese and Japanese will gobble them up like crazy. Then, as soon as they see a better avenue for investment, they will liquidate these bonds. This in turn will cause the prime interest rate in the US to blast into outer space and further cripple the already-devastated real estate and credit markets.
The government has known this for some time now. Believe that. That's why government continues its discreet efforts to remove us, on a massive scale. Government policy makes know a dire financial future, is fast approaching: paying for the care of all the retired Baby Boomers is costly beyond believe. They subsidize animal products. They ensure that diabetes mellitus, heart disease, various forms of cancer, atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, hypertension, obesity and every disease remain at all-time highs. They don't encourage a return to family based living, where meal planning and preparation takes place at home. They do not want you to rise above disease and live a long-life.
They want you to die - and the quicker the better.
This is my plea to you, Grubstreeters: Save yourselves starting today - right now. Take the time to plan your food intake programs at home. Focus your food choices on whole grain products, vegetables, fruits, legumes, beans, seeds, nuts and sprouts. Stay away from animal muscles, flesh and organs. Avoid trans-fats and saturated fats like the plagues they are. Consume only low-fat or no-fat dairy products if any at all. Throw your saltshakers into the trashcan. Increase the amount of potassium in your diet. Flush with fresh water daily. Learn how to limit your stress. Learn to meditate, take a Yoga, Pilates or Tai Chi class.
Take control of your family's health and take it very seriously. We are dying. We die, too early, in the hope of sustainable profit, for some, and nothing for others. Do not take my word for it. Just look at the national statistics, stop ignoring and stand up for your health. This is your new year. Make it your best.
We are all responsible for our own lives and the lives of those we love. You really are what you eat, today, the next day and the next. Please heed my plea for increased dietary awareness.
