Beware Of The Illusion Of Health
The truth is that NONE of us in North America are as healthy as it appears that we are.
The Natural Killer cell function, which is the first line of defense in our immune system, was at least 29% lower in 1997 than what it was in 1981, having dropped from 152 Litic Units (LU) to 108 LU in 1997 (probably due primarily to the unavoidable high levels of toxins in our environment). Plus the rate of decline is accelerating -- the last six years it has averaged a drop of 3% a year! Now it is probably dropping at 4% or more per year!
Based on this fact, who can claim to be healthy? When your immune system is down 29% and can be dropping by 3-4% per year. You can be in "great shape" in terms of your muscles and appearance. However, one day you may be feeling fine, and then you are shocked to discover you have a life threatening disease.
The unavoidable shocking truth is that 95% of Americans will die as a victim of heart/circulatory disease (50%), cancer (33%) and diabetes (12%). That's 95%! This doesn't even include a host of other diseases like arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, Hepatitis C (liver infection, predicted to become a bigger problem than AIDS), etc.
What are you doing to make sure you aren't going to be part of that 95%?
Add to that the fact that close to 100% of us began developing heart disease when we were children -- it just doesn't become evident for some 40 odd years. Did you know that autopsies done on soldiers who died in combat in the Vietnam war revealed that A large % of them had advanced heart disease? These young men were mostly teenagers who appeared to be "healthy".
Did you know that the very FIRST symptom of a serious heart condition over 50% of the time is a FATAL heart attack?
Did you know that you have cancer cells developing every day in your body? 100% of the population does too, and that includes you and me. As soon as your personal immune system gets weak enough, the cancer may take over. A strong immune system is the only thing that stands between you and full blown cancer.
And because our immune system function is already down over 29% and falling, 33% of Americans will die from cancer. Most cancer takes 5-30 years to develop to the point were it is detectable. Until you have an obvious symptom, you may feel and look fine, even though you've been growing a deadly tumor for up to 30 years.
If you inherited strong reserves, these problems may take years to fully develop; if not, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, etc. manifest much earlier in children. As an example, a few years back in Everett, Washington, a 15 year old basketball player suddenly died during a Monday night game against Anacortes High School. His heart just suddenly stopped for no apparent cause. CPR was done immediately until the medics arrived, who worked on him for another 30 minutes. Even an autopsy did not reveal the cause of death. This was a young athlete that appeared to be healthy, but obviously was not.
It is ignorance or foolishness to rely on just how you look or feel or a blood test. Those indicators, though valid, are too limited.
Therefore, I say EVERYONE needs to do something -- not just to maintain our "illusion of health", but to begin immediately to regain health before the hidden problems manifest.
"Protection" was the key word maybe 15 years ago. We are beyond just needing protection -- we need a regular foundational health program: Diet, exercise, and nutritional supplements.
This is true even if we feel and look healthy and a doctor gives you his OPINION that you are in "perfect health." Would you assume that a car is "healthy" just because it is clean and polished on the outside? It might even be running fine today, but if the oil has never been changed, it could be "suddenly" ready for the junk yard tomorrow without any advanced warning.
