This article and other like it raise my ire!! Grrr....
The offensive article
“Boomers, who are between 47 and 64 years old, are fatter, less active, drink more and are more likely to have mobility problems compared to the previous generation. They’re also have a higher incidence of diabetes, high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol.
Why so little improvement in health among boomers, despite better medication and advances in medical care? Obesity and inactivity could be the culprit. More than half (52%) of baby boomers reported they don’t exercise at all, compared to 17.4% of their parent’s generation. And obesity rates have risen from 29.4% to 38.7%.”
Why so little improvement in health despite better medication & advances in medical care?
That’s the question posed by the writer of this article? A question riddled with assumptions.
Is the medication "better"? Are their "advances" in medical care? Who says so?
Have no worries. The assumption filled question had already been answered. Right when the article started. Easier for the dumbed down reading audience. It’s your fault. You drink more and are less active
I have a different view on that theory
What if one of the culprits is the alleged ‘better medication’ and the alleged “advances’ in medical care?
Let’s take a gander at just a few problems created by alleged better meds & advances in medical care......
Antibiotics linked to asthma
A widely used antibiotic can increase the risk and severity of asthma, according to groundbreaking Canadian research that could help explain why millions of children now need to use puffers.
An anti-biotic that increases the risk and severity of asthma. Is that better medication?
Acid-Blockers linked to increased C Dif and Mineral Deficiencies Etc, Etc.,
The (FDA) has issued several warnings associated with long-term or high-dose use of PPIs, including: an increased risk of bone fractures, risk of low magnesium levels, and risk of Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea -- a potentially life threatening conditionThe little 'purple pill' and others of it's ilk are not so harmless. Better meds, really?
Merck cholesterol drug fails; risks seen
Increased Cancer and the cholesterol drug Vytorin
Allegedly lower your cholesterol... and increase your cancer risks! That reads like better medical intervention to me. Yes sireeee.....
How about all those vaccines: Replete with the deadly neurotoxin mercury. Oh and Formaldehyde.
Yummy. Baby boomers have certainly been indoctrinated to stand in line for more of that year after year, unlike their parents
Global Mercury ban exempts......vaccines
What does one suppose are the cumalative effects of all that mercury accumulating in the tissues of humans?
How about the contamination in big pharma drugs?
What havoc will these unwittingly ingested contaminants play on human health over time?
Antibiotics damaging long term immunity & Drug recalls
More problems with antibiotics, including but not limited to destroying your gut bacteria which is absolutely vital for your immune system
Back to the so called news article
The most important message here is that pills and medical breakthroughs can’t overcome the negative consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle – something all generations need to keep in mind.”Reinforcing the meme- Your bad. It's your fault.
The most important message you should take from this article is that pills and so called medical breakthroughs could be the very cause of your dis-ease. Because, as the article states, despite all that pharmaceutical filth available, the large cohort of baby boomers are less healthy then their parents who ingested vastly smaller quantities of pharmaceutical snake oil.
What other relevant to your health issues were not mentioned in this article?
The main stream whoring media won’t dare mention, the industrialization of our food as another major culprit for our dis-ease The food eaten by the parents of boomers was cleaner, less toxic, less processed and therefore vastly healthier. Often grown right in their own back yards! A practice discouraged today.
Just a few stories regarding the toxicity of food.
There are probably other posts here on this topic, but, just to give you an idea of how toxic the food really is and why your ill health is not entirely the product of your ‘laziness and bad choices’

How about Pink Slime and Ammonia? Two Main Ingredients in Some Ground Beef
Yes, Ammonia. Should you be eating ammonia? I don’t think so!
Don’t even get me started on the monumental problems involved in the factory farming of live stock such as cattle and pigs. Or the mono-culture farming of our vegetable crops And, the tremendous toll on human health brought on by increased pesticides, GMO and bacterial contamination of foods. The parents of the boomer generation did not have to deal with this filth until much later in their lives.
Articles, like the guilt inducing one that started this post, are abundant in the mainstream media constantly barrage us with the message that we are at fault for the bad health that abounds amongst the human race.
The message in all these articles is: This is all your fault!
You are making poor choices. You are lazy.
I am calling bullshit on this!
You should too.
