From inside the bubble, Bloomberg has finally discovered what those living outside of the bubble have been actually living for years.
Americans are getting sicker, dying earlier, and working longer. Yep, it’s nothing new. It’s gotten worse and worse and worse. Yet the dumbass government can send troops to Niger, Mali, Chad, Nigeria to colonize Africa again. And they can pay rebels to kill Syrians.
Good jobs are more difficult to find. Wages are stagnant. Basic living costs keep increasing. More and more people are living in poverty. People are having to work more hours a week and later in life just to pay bills. The quality of life has been dropping like a hot potato for the average American.
I say it all the time: This is NOT the country of my grandparents. In those days, anyone with a work ethic could live a decent, comfortable life.
And someone inside of the bubble of the elite has not only noticed, but written a report on it. Wow.
And let’s talk about health. Cancer has skyrocketed. Type 2 diabetes has skyrocketed. Chronic disease has skyrocketed.
It wasn’t like this 30 years ago. Why? Does anyone ask?
There is more than 1 reason. Americans aren’t taught about basic and vital health issues such as preventable measures and GMO foods for instance. It’s not a coincidence that GMO foods have risen along with rates of cancer, diabetes, and many chronic diseases. And the cheap food that’s GMO, filled with added sugar, chemicals and even chemicals used in plastics that have no business being in food, is the food that poor people are forced to eat. No wonder other countries want to ban Monsanto, the evil company that wants to make people sick.
Stress also causes and adds to many illnesses. Current society is overflowing with stress. The failing economy and worry about not being able to make rent, not being able to pay for a car repair to get to work, not able to buy your kid’s Christmas or birthday gifts, etc. are eating people up with stress. Stress causes all kinds of diseases.
A diet of junk and a sedentary lifestyle causes obesity. Obesity causes all kinds of diseases. We’re breathing nasty chemicals that are in the chemical trails sprayed in the air (that’s a scientific fact, not a myth let the genius Clif High at www.halfpasthuman.com explain that). Between the poisoned food, air, and toxic society, America went from the best county in the world to the quarantined sick room of the world.
“The U.S. retirement age is rising, as the government pushes it higher and workers stay in careers longer.
But lifespans aren’t necessarily extending to offer equal time on the beach. Data released last week suggest Americans’ health is declining and millions of middle-age workers face the prospect of shorter, and less active, retirements than their parents enjoyed.
Here are the stats: The U.S. age-adjusted mortality rate—a measure of the number of deaths per year—rose 1.2 percent from 2014 to 2015, according to the Society of Actuaries. That’s the first year-over-year increase since 2005, and only the second rise greater than 1 percent since 1980.
At the same time that Americans’ life expectancy is stalling, public policy and career tracks mean millions of U.S. workers are waiting longer to call it quits. The age at which people can claim their full Social Security benefits is gradually moving up, from 65 for those retiring in 2002 to 67 in 2027.
Almost one in three Americans age 65 to 69 is still working, along with almost one in five in their early 70s.
Postponing retirement can make financial sense, because extended careers can make it possible to afford retirements that last past age 90 or even 100. But a study out this month adds some caution to that calculation.
Americans in their late 50s already have more serious health problems than people at the same ages did 10 to 15 years ago, according to the journal Health Affairs.”
