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.

Hell No Big Pharma! Americans Now Spending BILLIONS On Natural Health Remedies

Americans now spending BILLIONS on natural health remedies including superfoods and homeopathy, while denouncing Big Pharma’s failed medicine

Homeopathy-Herbs-Spices

by: Isabelle Z.

(NaturalNews) As more and more Americans are starting to realize that conventional medicine does not hold the answers to their problems, their spending on natural health remedies is rising. In fact, a study that was recently released by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) shows that Americans spend $30.2 billion on complementary health approaches each year. When you consider the fact that they spend $328.8 billion on out-of-pocket health expenditures overall, the significant portion of health-related spending occupied by alternative remedies becomes quite clear.

The study used data from the 2012 National Health Interview Survey, which was then weighted to come up with estimates that more accurately represent the nation’s population at large.

According to the researchers, one out of every five Americans over the age of 4 spent money on at least one complementary health approach. Some of the treatments that fall under this category include tai chi, massage therapy, homeopathic treatment, energy healing therapy, chiropractic manipulation and hypnosis.

Natural product supplements like fish oil, probiotics and digestive enzymes were more popular than visits to alternative health practitioners. This type of expense is not typically covered by health insurance, which means that families who have higher incomes tend to use them more often than those in lower income brackets.

Another interesting finding was that the $12.8 billion spent on natural product supplements alone in 2012 is equal to about a quarter of the amount of money spent on prescription drug use that year, which was $54 billion.

Complementary healthcare users aged four and older spent $510 per year on average on these approaches.

‘People are fed up’

The National Products Association’s Executive Director, Daniel Fabricant, who also happens to be a former FDA Director of Dietary Supplement Programs, said:

“People are fed up with the type of care they get from primary physicians that is covered by insurance. Across the board, people are looking for ways to stay healthy on their own.”

He pointed out that the average doctor sees 40 patients a day, spending just seven minutes with each one on average. This means that people don’t feel engaged with their doctors, and are taking matters into their own hands.

Big Pharma losing ground

Another factor at play here is people’s growing disillusionment with the deceitful practices of Big Pharma, whose overpriced medications often do little to cure problems, and can leave people in worse shape than when they started, thanks to their many side effects. Pharmaceutical firms are also known to engage in deceptive research tactics, and people are now seeing for themselves how many of their “solutions” send people into a cycle of dependency without really curing anything.

According to The Economist, Americans spend a whopping 20.9 percent of their total household expenditures on health costs, far exceeding other countries. As more people realize that Big Pharma profits from people being sick, they are turning to alternative options.

This sea-change in attitude can also be evidenced by consumers’ increasing preference for organic produce. The world’s second-largest retailer, Costco, announced this year that organic sales had jumped 72 percent since 2008, with its organics sales totaling $4 billion last year.

The message is clear: Americans are fed up with Big Pharma. They are tired of the lies. People don’t want to load their bodies up with the dangerous chemicals found in medications. They don’t want their fruits and vegetables to be laced with pesticides. And their spending habits are starting to back this up. One can only hope this trend will continue, with natural health spending eventually outstripping that of conventional medicine.
