Is it just me, or are the majority of people really sick?
Everywhere I go there are people hacking, sneezing, and looking unwell. It doesn't matter what time of year it is - I have never gone somewhere without the majority of people being sick. What is worse, is that they never cover their face.
My husband and I seem to be the exception in this world!
Is it just in my part of the world, or do you notice this too?
I've noticed this with children for sure. It's easy to notice because my two kids, aged 3 and 4, rarely even have a runny nose. I honestly believe it comes down to diet. My kids tend to eat a lot of vegetables and fruit, not much candy and not much junk food. I imagine the same applies for adults
I am constantly surrounded by kids who, as we all know, are more ripe for illness than a virus-growing petri dish. But despite this, I only know a few people who are constantly ill. I think it involves how people care for themselves and whether or not their immune systems are functioning up to par. I certainly feel sorry for those people; I only get seriously ill about once per year, and it's the worst thing ever. Some people are just more susceptible to illness than others!
You are right, I notice this too. I think people care less for their health and that's why it happens. With all that fast food industry and low nutrient and vitamins food, sooner or later it pays off.
No, I'm not aware of this problem. It does happen in patches but not right now. I think you can focus too much on negatives. Life is for living. Germs are all around us. Go forth and prosper!
The majority also consumes the poisons they keep pumping into their food & water supply, as well. If you refuse to grow your own food or eat organic stuff, going with content labels that have ingredients you can fluently pronounce, goes a long way...
Lack of breastfeeding, lack of exercise, more fast food, more pharmaceuticals, all contribute. We start children off for the last 40 or 50 years by giving them powder (made by a corporation) and water, then start feeding them unnatural fast foods, we are too scared to let them play outside for any amount of time for fear they'll be kidnapped or get too dirty, then we look for anything wrong so we can pump them full of pills (every pill has a possibility for death), then we end up with lazy grown ups who are use to sitting on their butts eating fast food. It's a vicious cycle that just keeps going.
Perhaps it's allergies, there are so many triggers with the numbers seemingly on the increase. But it could be issues such as colds and so forth. I also notice a fair number of people hacking or sneezing. Either way, I don't notice a majority of people being sick, but it does seem like a large number. Many people simply don't take care of themselves or their kids and hold the full belief that if they can buy something in a store it must be safe. Gpishev, Peeples, and Insane Mundane are right and that photo of the officer is just sooooooo wrong

I was fooling around on Youtube and somehow ended up on Nazi death camps. I was astonished at so many commenters who said that the entire Holocaust was invented - that it never happened. They said the Jews and the Allies made the whole thing up. According to them, the Nazis treated their POWs with...
