Puzzling Health Facts Learned By Reading the Obituaries

Updated on March 26, 2012

Why Are Those with the Best Health Care Dying So Young?

I learned a puzzling health fact by reading the obituaries -- Some of the folks who have the best health care and generally low-stress jobs are dying shortly after or even before the age of 65! This doesn't make sense to me, if we accept as true the proposition that better access to health care in the U.S. is a good thing.

It has even been suggested that because we in the USA don't have free access to health care, we end up spending more on medical expenses and being far less healthy by several measures of public health. This puzzling fact puts that notion into question.

Now, admittedly, this fact is drawn from a small sampling and there could be many explanations given for it. Nevertheless, since I have known several of these now-deceased U.S. Forest Service employees -- and I am familiar with their health habits and general love of outdoor recreation -- I will stand by my suspicion that there is a trend here that is worth watching.

I have also seen a few doctors turn up in the obituaries, one of whom died at age 48 of cancer.

Behind all my amateur sleuthing there lies an agenda. It is that there are many assumptions about how we Americans live, eat, and what kind of medical advice we get that are patently incorrect. Almost everybody here lives and eats this way, so we think we're doing the right thing, but the evidence is not encouraging.

Our food looks like the food our ancestors ate with fairly good results, but modern versions contain as many hidden dangers as a minefield. Toxic additives, preservatives, artificial colors, flavors, and chemical sprays have who-knows-what effects on our long term health, yet our watchdog agencies usually rely on the safety testing done by the manufacturers themselves!

Corporate profits drive the approval of artificial sweeteners, such as Aspartame, while natural nutrients and sweeteners (such as Stevia) must defend themselves at great expense.

Along with the assumption that our processed foods and even our non-organic vegetables and fruits are safe, we face the American preference for dealing with disease retroactively, rather than proactively. For example, once someone has cancer, nothing the sickness care industry can offer has an impressive chance of success. By the time our super-expensive, high-tech devices can detect cancer, it has already metastasized.

There are easier ways to prevent cancer, but this is not the focus of our medical/pharmaceutical industry. Their idea of prevention is "early detection" so they can start bombarding your weakened immune system with X-rays(I thought these caused cancer.) and toxic chemicals. This seems to be in the great tradition of using leeches and barbers' razors to bleed evil "humors" out of patients.

One factor that may tie together these seemingly unrelated deaths of those who have the best health care is the fact that employees in both medical facilities and at major federal employers are often "strongly encouraged" to get annual flu shots and other vaccines. I will contend that this might be the factor that weakens their otherwise healthy immune system in the absence of any other obvious health risks.
