Why We are Living Longer and Yet Ever Sicker Lives

by Tony Isaacs

(The Best Years in Life) Mainstream medicine advocates and apologists are quick to tout how much average life expectancy has increased over the past several decades and quick to give mainstream medicine much of the credit. However, what those same mainstream medicine proponents have a hard time explaining is why, despite the increasing use of mainstream medicines, we are also seeing an increase in chronic illness across all age groups. Here is the simple answer:

Life expectancy has increased dramatically over the past century or so due primarily to better sanitation, better potable water, better access to primary medical care (mainly trauma care) and, until recent decades, better nutrition. As one example - as late as the 1950s's and even into the 1960's a large portion of the country still had outdoor toilets and quite a few did not have indoor plumbing or hot water heaters. Go back another half century or so and childbirth as well as childhood was tough. It wasn't until late in the 1800's that doctors realized the value of sterilizing instruments and washing their hands between patients.

And we have continued to make strides in better diagnosis and primary care even up through recent decades. Doctors are pretty good at diagnosis and very good at fixing broken parts - though woefully deficient in treating the body as a whole and in knowing the role of proper diet and nutrition.

However, thanks to the ever-increasing load of toxins - and I include vaccinations and other unnatural medical compounds - which we spew into the air we breath, water we drink, croplands and processed foods, we are seeing a slowing down of life expectanccy figures, and in some parts of the country life expectancy is actually reported to be declining.

The signs are everywhere: lower immune markers, increases in chronic illness in every age group, lower sperm count and fertility. Add that to the GMOs that are proliferating and a health system which rewards bad health habits and survival of the weakest and the outlook for future generations is not so bright as some would have us believe.


Quite simply, if something is not found in nature - along with the supporting natural compounds - it is quite likely that our bodies will recognize it as a toxin. And when medicines merely manage symptoms with unnatural compounds which result in side effects that create more conditions which must be treated with yet more unnatural compounds and medical procedures - well, it is a great model for profit, especially when your only marketplace is our bodies - but it is a horrible one for healing and humanity.

You can debate to what extent it is deliberate or not, but what it looks like we have is mainstream (or maim-stream as I call it) medicine keeping us both alive as long as possible but also as sick as possible without actually dying - or at least until the insurance and/or savings run out and we are shuffled off to dying centers (hospices and for-profit rest homes).

Despite all the advances, the fact is that the United States continues to fall further down the ladder on the two most important measurements of health - life expectancey and child mortality. And that despite being by far the most medicated country with the highest per capita medical expense in the world as well as by far the most highly vaccinated. We are much closer in those measurements to Mexico than to the top countries - several of which practice natural healing to a much greater extent than we do.

Next time someone tells you that mainstream medicine is so wonderful, ask them if such is the case, why is it that the average lifespan of a doctor is about 20 years less than that of a waitress? It almost seems like you would be better off if you got sick to go to the local diner, get a cup of coffee and chat up the waitress!
