Do We Have A Health Crisis?

We live in an absolute beautiful word. There are so many possibilities, but let’s face it, some of us squander the gift of life. Let’s not get too political straight away, but let’s get social first. According to the CDC, 34.9% of adults are obese. That’s over one-third! That’s crazy and completely changeable. But the government doesn’t do much to change it. If this doesn’t scare you enough, here’s another fact: “Over 17% of children and adolescents are obese”. That’s almost the majority of kids that are overweight.

health crisisDespite a total cost of $147 billion in the US alone. Imagine if those resources were spend on something worthwhile. Sure, some people have medical conditions which prevents them from losing the weight. But many are lazy, and do not make any real effort to stay a healthy weight. This is just one example of how our health system is broken. So to answer the question I started with. Are we in a health crisis? We certainly are!

Another major issue we encounter which gets no recognition is mental health. People are struggling from depression, anxiety and other mental conditions, which are not taken seriously. Sure, many of it might not be real. But plenty of people are truly suffering. Can’t we find a way to allocate resources to help people, instead of dismissing there issues? What’s more, if we used the resources to prevent such conditions, whether it’s mental health or obesity, we could really make a difference. Right now, we are focusing on issues when it’s too late. Let’s spend some of that money on preventing the issues that plague this nation.

There’s less serious issues as well. Take for example the summer. It’s one of the hottest summers this decade. But people literally don’t apply sunscreen. It’s insane! People get burned, despite everyone knowing that sunscreen is an essential part of going outside in the summer. But the government doesn’t reward this behavior, we just have to solve it ourselves. There are literally websites out there that explain how to use coconut oil for sunburn relief. Why can’t we solve other health issues in the same way? You caused the problem, you solve it.

In fact talking about this aforementioned website, wouldn’t it make sense to point people to so that they can find natural solution to their problems. It would be better, cheaper and way more conductive to society than handing out money to people for things they brought on themselves.

While all this might sound harsh. We understand some people in society need help. We’re all for that. But lots of people are taking our society’s goodwill for granted and abusing this system which protects the less fortunate. So my advice, let’s become more self-sufficient. Let’s only help those who are helping themselves. Or those who need help and literally cannot do anything for themselves.

Urgent Action Needed For Health

With the Brexit happening this week, the UK is in big trouble. As a country, Great Britain was promised the world upon leaving the European Union, but nothing has been received so far.

Brexit and the NHS

Take for example, Nigel Farage. This British politician has recently admitted that the claims he has made in respect of the NHS were a mistake. What a joke? This borders political fraud. This party has publicly declared to the UK public that a Brexit would result in increased government spending towards the NHS (the UK health service). This won’t happen. This is  a prime example of how deceitful government can be. Don’t believe us? Check this video out with an interview which exposed this fraud:

We literally don’t even have any words for this! But it doesn’t stop here.

Brexit Consequences For Health

Apart from the UK health service, many other services will be affected. Do you buy anything from outside of the UK as a British citizen? If so, being outside of the EU will mean that anything will be more expensive. If you buy medicine from outside of the UK, then apart from losing extra funding from the NHS, your medicine will become more expensive. We can’t believe so many people voted for Brexit, since leaving the UK is disastrous for the UK people.

BREXIT-1Brexit General Consequences

Apart from health, other sectors will be impacted negatively. The pound has already crashed. The stock markets are suffering. If this isn’t bad enough, the property market is about to crash as well. It’s all going down, and independence isn’t what we were promised it would be. In fact, after all this, there is talk about staying in the EU. Whatever happens, the damage has already been done. Why did the UK population vote for such a disastrous leadership and why did they make such a bad choice in terms of the future of our country?
