Slow suicide in American culture

Many people won’t ever think of taking their own lives in a sudden, violent manner; yet they slowly kill themselves each day.
Smoking + junk food+ sleep deprivation + stress + lack of exercise = a slow death
Add in excessive alcohol consumption and you speed it up a little more.
Look around you and you’ll see it almost everywhere.

  • family
  • friends
  • coworkers
  • neighbors

You see the “out of control” obesity, the weakness, and the apathy in so many.

I used to say  that the most dangerous weapon in America was the fork, however, smoking is a close rival.

Terrorists aren’t our biggest threat; eating junk food and smoking are way more dangerous.

I have watched  people’s health decline right in front of my eyes from this.

When the human body is derived of exercise, proper nutrients and of sleep, the downward spiral begins.

Add extreme stress and constant anger to the mix and it gets worse.

Then pump poison fumes into the lungs (by  smoking) and a death sentence is in place.

Just a thought
