Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Americans Live Longer, Just Not Healthier

It’s not surprise that life expectancy is the U.S. has increased; however. I call this a blessing in disguise. People might live longer, but surely sicker. Advances in medicine and technology have allowed physicians to diagnose diseases earlier and keep people alive longer in spite of their health issues. Lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet are the cause of these preventable diseases that sooner or later most Americans suffer: cancer, heart-disease, obesity and diabetes.

Please visit Health rankings: USA is living longer, but sicker:

How is it honoring to God if we live longer but with ongoing health problems and less vitality? Should it surprise us that the health of people in general has deteriorated to a point that a great percentage of Americans are on prescription medications? After all, don’t we cause unimaginable suffering, sickness and health to God’s animals? Once again, we reap what we sow.
