Even before Obamacare became law, number-crunchers told Congress as well as the Main Stream Media that it could not be financially sustained. They promised collapse within a few years.

Additionally, Obamacare forced people to buy premiums against their will and Constitutional rights. It left the health-care industry in confusion.

Americans scratched their heads and voted for Donald Trump for president of the United States.

In reality, the majority of Americans don't care about their health. Recent research states that 67 out of 100 Americans suffer from obesity of 20 to 50 pounds overweight. That's two-thirds of the American public that works on their ill health. Half of that number suffers gross obesity of 50 to 100 pounds overweight. A stroll through the Midwest, east coast and west coast shows millions of Americans laboring to walk down the street with so much fat hanging over their belts or under their dresses.

Today, startling numbers in the millions of American children suffer obesity, diabetes and early onset heart disease. They suffer from high blood pressure in their teens.

The average American male watches 29 hours of TV weekly, which adds up to 4.1 hours daily, seven days a week. Women watch TV 24 hours week. That equates to 15 years of an average American's life watching television.

Today, 36,000,000 (million) Americans smoke cigarettes. That results in slow motion death that kills 480,000 people annually from lung cancer, year after year. Thus, that's 36 million people who could care less about their health.

Not to be outdone in the death department, 17,600,000 (million) alcoholics drink themselves into a slow motion death daily in the USA. If you look at the health-care programs, they show that 13 teenagers die of overdoses of alcohol-drugs every hour of the day, 24/7. That's 113,000 deaths annually in the USA for our teenagers. Obviously, they don't care about their health as they suffer from emotional chaos.

According to the Center for Disease Control, less than 50 percent of Americans exercise at all. That means their bodies become lumpy, dumpy and grumpy.

Americans gulp 43 gallons of soda pop annually. Coca-Cola and Mountain Dew as well as all the rest have been connected to heart disease, but Americans keep drinking them.

How even ONE can of Coke a day can increase the risk of heart failure by 20%:

" Study of 42,000 middle-aged men found two 200ml soft drinks each day was enough to increase the chance of heart failure by 23 per cent (Source:

Millions of Americans drink aspartame-sucralose-laced soda pop, sugar drinks, sport drinks and fruit juices. Those synthetic sugars wreak havoc on the their entire bodies starting with their livers, kidneys, hearts, pancreas and blood streams.

  Details   DMCA

Americans devour red meat, pork and chickens, all laced with growth hormones, chemicals, anti-bodies and GMO-fed livestock.

Notice that no one discusses that Autism, 30 years ago affected 1 in 20,000 live births. Today, 1 child in 88 births suffers from Autism. What do you expect with all the chemicals fed into mothers during pregnancy.
