Americans Have Never Been More Overweight Then They Are Now – New Survey Finds 40% Of U.S. Adults Are Obese

Americans have never needed to lose weight more than they do right now.  According to brand new numbers that were just released by the National Center For Health Statistics, nearly 40 percent of all U.S. adults are now officially obese.  That is an all-time record.  And as you will see below, more than 70 percent of us are officially overweight.  Of course most of the population does not even understand what is being done to them.  The elite that own our major food corporations know that eating heavily processed foods is a highway to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other deadly diseases, but they keep pushing those foods on us anyway.  The average American diet is extremely self-destructive, and it is time for a change.

 

If we do not change, our “obesity epidemic” will continue to grow even worse.  The following comes from CNN

The United States will not be escaping the obesity epidemic crisis anytime soon: Nearly 40% of adults and 19% of youth are obese, the highest rate the country has ever seen in all adults, according to research released Friday by the National Center for Health Statistics.

Since 1999, there has been a staggering rise in the prevalence of obesity, particularly in adults, without any “signs of it slowing down,” according to the study’s lead researcher, Dr. Craig Hales, medical epidemiologist at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

1999 was not that long ago.

And of course people were definitely talking about an “obesity epidemic” back then, but now it has gotten much, much worse.  In fact, researchers say that adult obesity and youth obesity have both risen by at least 30 percent since that time…

What is “very striking” about this information is that there has been a 30% increase in adult obesity and 33% increase in youth obesity from 1999-2000 data to 2015-16, despite government-focused efforts to address the issue, according to Michael W. Long, assistant professor at the Milken Institute of School Public Health at George Washington University.

So how do you know if you are obese?

It is not as simple as just looking in the mirror.  According to health authorities, if you have a body mass index over 30 you are obese, and a recent WHO report discovered that childhood obesity has risen “more than tenfold over the past four decades”

Obesity is medically defined as having a body-mass index of more than 30. The findings on obese kids in the U.S. comes on top of this week’s World Health Organization report that childhood obesity is soaring around the world, increasing more than tenfold over the past four decades.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why this is happening.  As the world economy has become globalized, the major food manufacturers are getting their garbage into the hands of more and more people.  Today, billions of people all over the planet are eating nutritionally-empty foods that are packed with all sorts of ingredients that humans simply should not be eating.


We are literally digging our own graves with our forks and our spoons.  According to this brand new report from the National Center For Health Statistics, at this point more than 70 percent of us “are either overweight or obese”

Overall, 70.7 percent of Americans are either overweight or obese, meaning that an unhealthy weight has become the norm, with normal weight Americans — a BMI of less than 25 — now in the minority.

That means that less than 30 percent of the population is at a healthy weight right now.

So what is the solution?

Going “on a diet” is not the answer.  Any short-term changes that you make are ultimately going to be futile if you don’t make long-term changes to your eating patterns.

If you really would like to have a healthier future, some major changes will be necessary.  Here are just a few tips to help get you started…

-Get as much sugar and high fructose corn syrup out of your diet as possible.  A great place to start is by getting rid of sodas and other sugary drinks.  My wife and I will have a soda when we go out to eat as a treat, but we don’t have any in our refrigerator at home.

-Try to start eliminating heavily processed foods from your diet.  This can be very difficult to do, because most of us have become quite accustomed to eating what the large food manufacturers offer us.

-Start shopping in the organic section of your local supermarket if you can afford to do so.  Organic food manufacturers often offer similar versions of what the large food manufacturers make, but the ingredients are far superior.

-Incorporate as much fresh produce into your diet as possible.  As humans, we are supposed to be eating a plant-based diet, but most of us have gotten very far away from that ideal.

-Make exercise a regular part of your daily life.  A sedentary lifestyle kills, and those that live active lifestyles often find that they can stay active well into their golden years.

If we don’t change our ways, the cost of treating obesity-related illnesses is going to threaten to overwhelm our healthcare system.  It is being reported that our obesity epidemic is already costing us 190 billion dollars a year

The consequences of the obesity epidemic are devastating: High blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and stroke are not only killing millions of Americans annually — the obesity epidemic is also a humongous burden on the American health care system, making up $190 billion a year in weight-related medical bills.

As long as we keep eating what they offer us, the major food manufacturers are going to keep doing what they have always done.

So it is up to us to make the changes that are necessary, and this is a battle that we simply cannot afford to lose.

Alert: Biggest Ever Study Confirms Antidepressant Drugs Raise Risk Of Suicide

Antidepressant Drugs Suicide
By Amando Flavio

A new study by researchers from Denmark and the United Kingdom, who have studied antidepressant drugs and their effects, have found that the drugs indeed push people to commit suicide, especially children.

The study is said to be the biggest ever to have been conducted on antidepressant drugs. The British Medical Journal has endorsed the findings of the study in its editorial column.

In the past, people have claimed that antidepressant medication drove their loved ones to commit suicide. However, these claims have been continually dismissed by medical companies and doctors who argue that there is no link between people committing suicide and the drugs.

These claims and counter-claims motivated some researchers to study the phenomenon in order to determine whether the drugs can indeed make people commit suicide.

Researchers from the Nordic Cochrane Centre and the University College London analyzed 70 trials of the most common antidepressants. The drugs reviewed were duloxetine; fluoxetine, which is also known as Prozac; paroxetine; sertraline and venlafaxine, which belong to two classes; selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors antidepressants (SSRIs) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs).

The researchers revealed that more than 18,000 people took part in the trials of these drugs. According to the researchers, they found that the drugs double the risk of suicide and aggressive behavior in people who are under the age of 18. Although a similar link was not seen in adults, the authors said misreporting of trial data could have led to a ‘serious under-estimation of the harms.’

The study, therefore, fingered pharmaceutical companies for failing to report side-effects and even deaths linked to the drugs. After comparing clinical trial information to actual patient reports, the researchers clearly found pharmaceutical companies had regularly misclassified deaths and suicidal events in people taking antidepressants, to favor their products.

Observers who looked at the findings of the study said it is deeply worrying, disturbing even, that the clinical trials were deliberately misreported by the pharmaceutical companies.

Telegraph reports that in the United Kingdom, the study looked at the five most common drugs prescribed for depression, including Prozac. It analyzed the published summary reports provided by pharmaceutical companies to drugs regulators and compared it with the raw data from clinical trials.

Four deaths were misreported by one unnamed pharmaceutical company, who claimed they had occurred after the trials had stopped. One patient strangled himself unexpectedly after taking venlafaxine, but because he survived for five days, he was excluded from the results because it was claimed he was no longer on the trial while he was dying in hospital from the self-inflicted injuries.

More than half of the suicide attempts and suicidal thoughts had been mis-recorded as emotional instability, or worsening of depression. In summary trial reports from the drugs giant Eli Lilly, suicidal attempts were missing in 90% of cases, the study found.

Lead author of the study from the Nordic Cochrane Centre, Professor Peter Gøtzsche said “Antidepressants don’t work in children, that is pretty clear, in the randomized trials children say that they don’t work for them, but they increase their risk of suicide.”

Dr Joanna Moncrieff from University College London also said that “People in the United Kingdom are consuming more than four times as many antidepressants as they did two decades ago. Despite this, we still do not fully understand the effects of these drugs.”

The study concluded that before the drugs are given to children and young adults, they should first be given exercise and psychotherapy.

A man from the United Kingdom, whose son committed suicide after taking Citalopram, has been monitoring suicides related to antidepressant medication for the last three years. He has set up an anonymous campaigning website AntiDepAware.

He added his voice to the study, revealing that this month, there have been at least 35 inquests with deaths linked to antidepressants. Last year, he recorded more than 450 deaths linked to antidepressants.

Statistics show that the United Kingdom has the seventh highest prescribing rate for antidepressants in the Western world. About four million British citizens consume the drugs each year, giving the pharmaceutical companies more than £200 million each year.

Jonathan Gruber Obamacare SchemeJonathan Gruber The Zionist Behind The Obamacare Scheme That Was Created To Scam You

OBAMACARE ARCHITECT ANNIHILATED

By The Daily Bail

Rep. Mike Turner has a few questions for Gruber.

Jonathan Gruber testified before the House concerning the bait-and-switch tactic used to pass Obamacare despite the fact that the Administration knew the legislation was a flat out tax.

Gruber was a self-dealing architect of that legislation, the passage of which has netted his company millions in compensation. Gruber achieved notoriety by publicly boasting of his deception at the same time he berated Americans as stupid.

Turner put on a clinic in witness control, posing 14 yes-no questions to the stunned MIT professor. Each time Turner didn’t get a responsive answer (“yes,” “no,” or “I don’t know”) to one of his questions, he cut Gruber off at the knees and immediately planted another short truncheon into the forehead of the reeling witness. An epic take down. The ashen faces of the panel witnesses at the conclusion of this bloodbath are not to be missed.

Obamacare: Insurance Premiums Set To Explode Nationwide

Excellent, quick update from America’s Newsroom last night on health insurance pricing for 2016 and beyond. Who could have possibly predicted the demise of Obamacare, besides anyone with a functioning cerebral cortex? It was obvious from the start: you will never have enough healthy people sign up to cover the cost of the sick and needy. Everyone knew this, even Jonathan Gruber.

THE JEWS BEHIND
OBAMA’S HEALTH CARE SCHEME

By Brother Nathanael Kapner,

WITH CONGRESS FOISTING socialized medicine on unwilling Americans, the leading figure behind health care reform is the Jewish billionaire George Soros joined by Jewish medical, political, and academic professionals.

With his endless purse of money—gotten by sinking the US economy in 2008 and at the same time making billions doing it—to back whatever cause he chooses, Soros has the means to engineer the destinies of entire nations. Indeed, Soros has already implemented his global agenda in both Georgia and Kosovo.

Known as Obama’s “money man,” Soros’ involvement with Obama’s political career began in 2005 with Soros heavily contributing to Obama’s Senatorial campaign and continued through Obama’s 2007 Presidential launch with huge fundraising operations.

Soros has also been pouring money into the Democratic Party with the intent of amassing a horde of lawmakers with socialist leanings.

“George Soros has purchased the Democratic Party,” said Republican National Committee spokeswoman, Christine Iverson, “and he who pays the piper calls the tune.”

Much of Soros’ funding goes into radical leftwing groups addressing a range of issues from government-funded health care to establishing a borderless America with special rights for illegal aliens — all in his quest to subvert a white Christian power bloc.

As one who turned against his own people as a Nazi informer in Hungary, nothing prevents Soros from sending to death a whole nation while living off the people who host him.

WELCOME TO THE WELFARE STATE
ASSISTED-SUICIDE, EUTHANSIA, & ABORTION SUBSIDIES, being partof Soros’ vision for nationalized medical care, the hedge fund magnate initially plunged $15 million to “overturn the dominance of marketplace values in the practice of medicine.” These are Soros’ exact words when addressing a group of physicians and surgeons during a recent speech at Columbia University.

Soros is peddling financial and political influence through the Institute On Medicine As A Profession which he founded in 2003 with a $7.5 million grant from his umbrella group, The Open Society Institute, a leading promoter of health care reform.

In its Mission Statement, Soros’ Institute On Medicine As A Profession calls for centralized regulation of the medical profession:

“There is a clear need for formal regulation of the medical industry whether through state or federal legislative and administrative bodies.” View Entire Story Here.

A cast of Jewish medical professionals make up Soros’ Board of Directors and Faculty of his Institute On Medicine As A Profession. Along with President of the Board, Dr David Rothman and his wife, Dr Sheila Rothman, (both of Jewish-owned Columbia University), is Wendy Levinson MD and a sprinkling of Gentile doctors conveniently used as ‘non-Jewish’ window dressing.

Allied with Soros’s Institute On Medicine As A Profession are two of Soros-funded Jewish organizations that promote “wealth redistribution” of OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY – not theirs. The Center For American Progress and its parent company, The Democratic Alliance, are Soros’ leading vehicles in his drive to drain the white Christian middle class in a Marxist welfare state.

RALLIES – BOUGHT & PAID FOR
DEMONSTATORS IN THE NATION’S CAPITOL supporting Obama’s health care reform plan have failed to capture the enthusiasm of the American people, 60% of which, reject Obama’s scheme to nationalize their medical care.

The rallies were organized by Health Care for America Now!, a “national grassroots campaign of more than 1,000 organizations dedicated to the US government’s financing of health coverage for all Americans.” The group is known for its “close ties” to the Obama administration and the Democratic Party.

Most of Health Care for America Now!component organizations have two things in common: they have no expertise in health care and are the furthest thing from being a “grassroots campaign” with virtually all receiving large tax-exempt grants from far-left Jewish billionaires George Soros and investment banker mogul, Steve Gluckstern.

The leading members of the groups’ “grassroots” steering committee are MoveOn.org, The Center for American Progress, and The Campaign for America’s Future, all created with Soros-money. View More Members Here.

The Campaign for America’s Future co-founders include Washington Post columnist Harold Meyerson, sixties agitator Tom Hayden, and socialist feminist Barbara Ehrenreich – ALL Jews.

Each year, The Campaign for America’s Future holds a “Take Back America” conference, a gathering of DC “progressives,” (a euphemism for “Marxists”). In 2006, prominent speakers at this conference included Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Senator Russ Feingold, all socialized medicine advocates at the time. View Entire Story Here, Here, & Here.

The coalition of these groups, which foists its Marxist agenda on America’s domestic life, is steered by the financial and political fingers of George Soros and his Jewish adjuncts. What is their aim? The redistribution of white Americans’ wealth. The result? Total Jewish control over the fleeced, dispirited, and bankrupted white Gentiles and their country…

FDA REINTRODUCES BARBARIC MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT TO BE USED ON 15 MILLION AMERICANS

FDA to declassify electroshock therapy to same risk category as condoms and contact lenses

by: J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) The Food and Drug Administration is set to allow for the dramatic expansion of electroshock therapy for patients who have been diagnosed with clinical depression, through reclassification of the devices used to deliver shock treatment, despite the fact that experts and former patients have attested to the damage such treatment causes.

As noted by mental health watchdog organization Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHRI), the FDA began the reclassification process for Electroconvulsive Therapy Devices (ECT) in early January. The change would lower the devices from their current highest-risk Category III classification, “to allow electric shock machines to be utilized in the treatment of specific alleged mental illnesses with less regulatory controls,” the organization noted in an alert.

The change, detailed here at Regulations.gov, is being sought, “despite the federal agency’s admission that the ECT device has not been proven safe and effective,” CCHRI noted further, adding that to date, some 5 million Americans have been given ECT treatments without their manufacturers having been required to submit valid scientific evidence (like clinical trials), that they were safe and effective.

No oversight

“The proposal has reignited a firestorm that the FDA has colluded with the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to promote a dangerous treatment and protect the fiscal concerns of APA members rather than protect patient lives,” CCHRI reported.

The organization says that the FDA has been dragging its feet on the reclassification since it first made the proposal in 2009 – shortly after President Obama took office – requesting public input.

Further, at a public hearing in January 2011, some 80 percent of respondents, and another 92 group submissions representing more than 6,000 people, were against reclassification, the organization noted.

ECT devices work by sending up to 460 volts of electricity through the brain, with no scientific evidence to back up how the procedure works to reduce a patient’s psychological condition, CCHRI noted. Evidence and patient reports actually state that following ECT treatments patients have complained of memory loss, cardiovascular complications and lasting brain damage. CCHRI says that some patients have even died.

In fact, in 1979 the FDA classified the ECT device as Class III because of its “potential unreasonable risk of illness or injury.”

In January, Medicine.news reported that a bill had been introduced in Congress that would allow the testing of medical devices on patients without prior consent.

The bill, known as the 21st Century Cures Act, “essentially weakens the already weak standards for the approval process of prescription drugs and medical devices, solely benefiting the pharmaceutical industry while placing Americans directly in harm’s way as they unknowingly become guinea pigs,” Medicine.news reported.

Major depressive disorders will worsen

That includes the weakening of standards governing medical devices like ECT, according to Lee Spiller, CCHRI executive director.

“For years, the makers of psychiatric electroshock (ECT) machines have been unable to get their machines moved out of category III (dangerous or experimental) and into category II,” he said – this is the same category as condoms, contact lenses and air purifiers.

CCHRI says that ECT makers have never had to provide a Premarket Approval Application (PMA) with clinical trial results that prove the safety of the devices. In 1990 and again in 2009, the federal government required FDA to either reclassify Class III medical devices or make sure that manufacturers were submitting PMAs as required if they remained at the high-risk classification. But ECT makers have failed to meet this requirement.

Safety testing by manufacturers is largely omitted under the 21st Century Cures Act, Medicine.news reported, adding that drug and device makers “can even gain FDA approval for products based solely on the experience of individuals.”

The FDA’s current proposal would reduce the risk classification of ECT devices for treating “severe major depressive episode (MDE) associated with major depressive disorder (MDD) or bipolar disorder (BPD) in patients 18 years of age or older who are treatment-resistant or who require a rapid response due to the severity of their psychiatric or medical condition,” the rule change states.
