Comparing now and the time of our forefathers, longevity rate has reduced drastically;people no longer live up to a 100+ years before dying.For instance,both my paternal and maternal grandparents died at the healthy age of:105,103,97 respectively, and the remaining one (my maternal granny) is above 100 still healthy and strong though,she tried kicking the bucket last weekend but her God said no! So i'm kinda worried as to the cause of rapid rate of human early and untimely death nowadays,is it tribute to technology,science,development and climate change or what?I would disclose what my granny told me about this soon as a hub.Like to hear from you wonderful guys?
Life expectancy worldwide has risen on average by 4 months each year since 1970. I met my great grandmother, she lived to be 97. It depends on your family genes, lifestyle, etc. how long you live. I don't think the life expectancy is going down. Why do you think so acco?
The rate at which young people die around my area is quite alarming! We have 8 corpse unburied in my area now,and i heard news that many folks died in my village last month, courtesy of diabetes,high blood pressure,stroke including malaria and typhoid fever.My granny said it wasn't like that in their days.
Acco I suppose it has something to do with how the Colonial powers huddled all of your people into places your ancestors never lived and changed your whole habitat and way of life. I saw a program dealing with this very issue. What are your thoughts on that?
The untimely death thing is not only in Africa,i guess its a global pandemic, don't you think so? Did your forefathers knew about HIV AIDS,Swine Flu,Bird Flu,CAD,etc? I am suspecting unchecked human activities;industrialization,deforestation,scientific researches,increased warfares and wars,all these causes climate change which also affects human health though.
Golden, you mean shag? Do you think that's the best?We need our forests back,and my foundation has that as our long term project;planting trees and raising plants to fill in the lost ones but my finance isn't enough for now. We seriously need to hold a treaty on this issue,our globe is decaying fast and we are doing nothing but to add more harm,can't we form an environmental friends association here and see how far we can go please?
all in all Acco, people are pretty much just talk. People care but they have to worry about feeding their family before they go plant a tree. Its better just to shag and do cocaine then go crazy trying to convince people of the right thing.
I see! But if we can't unite,i sugest every hubber try and plant one tree in his or her area before this year runs out and they should try write a hub on ways of helping our environment before 31st December, 2009 at least.
Acco, you have too much faith in people. Hubpage people are nice but they don't control the world economy. Those that control our world economy must die or the Earth will. But they are without a face and so we have no idea what to do but throw rocks at each other.
There may be,but ours might make a difference.Would you take because so many hubbers and bloggers has written something on "make money" you now avoid writing something of your own on this topic?No! You will write and may be, yours might make a huge traffic,i hope you grab my point DarkS?By the way,thanks for that dictionary link you gave me,it has really helped me a lot, God bless you indeed!
I will jump now to read it, but please i won't comment because my internet connection won't allow me,i am using a mobile phone to browse and not my laptop, i hope you grab me? Congrats on your 100 hubs in 30 days, it isn't easy even if they are three line hubs!
Sorry..guess I should make a clarification. I did the 30 hub challenge. I have actually posted 35 hubs which was my personal goal so that I could have 100 TOTAL hubs. I actually produced better quality hubs during the challenge than I did prior to the challenge.
OK, I know I am a bit crook this week with the flue, but as I am no longer young, it is kicking the crap out of me!So I thought why not ask others if they have an opinion or something funny to say about aging.I hate...
