What Killed Us 200 Years Ago And What Kills Us Today



Looking back to the older times, you get the feeling that humankind dramatically progressed. That, us, the people who organized the American supreme democracy, who fought wars, constructed a nation, abolished slavery, invented remarkable machines and improved life to its smallest detail… would be capable of anything in order to overachieve ourselves. Yet, our time here, on this Earth, is limited. We continue to come and go. To live and to die. We spent most of our time in judgemental arguments, trying to distinguish what would be best and what wouldn’t… to fight over causes that only address the moment and not a superior reason.

In 2012, The New England Journal of Medicine celebrated its 200th anniversary. On this occasion, it published a review on causes and ideas about death and how they changed over the last 200 years.

In 1812, doctors were enumerating among the most frequent causes of death:

  • consumption
  • flux infantile
  • stillborn
  • sudden death

At the beginning of the 19th century, people were thinking they are dying due to:

  • apoplexy (a syndrome of fainting spells)
  • spontaneous combustion (caused by drinking brand)
  • drinking cold water
  • near-misses cannonballs, which, in their perception could shatter bones and cause blindness

Years passed and new diseases appeared.

Over the last two centuries we have a series of diseases.

In the 19th century, these were the diseases that were killing millions:

  • cholera
  • diphtheria
  • poliomyelitis
  • smallpox
  • consumption

We now have vaccines to defy these diseases.

In the beginning of the 20th century, the top 5 leading causes of death in the US were:

  • influenza and pneumonia
  • tuberculosis
  • gastrointestinal infections
  • heart disease
  • cerebrovascular diseases

The top changes in 2010. Now, we have clean water, better living conditions – in house plumbing, safe places to store food, medicines. Yet, new diseases spread. AIDS was firstly observed in the US in 1981. According to AIDS.gov, 1 in 8 is living with HIV and is unaware of the infection. In the last nearly 4 decades, about 35 million people died of AIDS.

The top of the most deadly causes changed in 2010 and now includes:

  • heart disease
  • cancer
  • chronic airways diseases
  • cerebrovascular diseases
  • different accidents

Why we die?

The life expectancy at birth, in the 1880 was only 39.41 years. It reached 60 years old in 1931 and 78.7 years in 2011.

Yet, cancer is not a new. Heart disease and coronary problems are not new either. Most of them are not triggered because we are wrongly built or we have birth defects.

We die because we poison ourselves  with pollution, tobacco, unhealthy diets, environmental chemicals or radiation. All human-made!

Thus, we die because of ignorance and even stupidity. We are the ones – the same race, people – who developed the vaccines against the deadly widespread epidemics. And still, we are the ones who deliberately use deadly, cancer-causing pesticides and additives, slowly but surely torturing ourselves to a slow, painful, agonizing death!

The ignorance of the world we live in.

Well, my friend, that’s why you are here, with me, on this website. You are here because we are all equal – there is no good or bad. We are all capable of incredible things. Still, some prefer to use the human creativity and ingenuity to proliferate evil. To discriminate, to create obvious or hidden mass destruction methods, to manipulate and to unethically take advantage.

You are here because you use the benefits of our today’s society – the Internet, the right of free speech, the power of knowing – to live a good, prosperous, long and healthy life!

This is my commitment to you: I’ll stand by you and do my best to bring you the latest and the most efficient natural tricks for your own and your family’s wellbeing!

    Here’s a nice graph for mortality stats: http://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/dataview/how-americans-die/

    What I’d like to see is the percentage of deaths – caused by diseases that were generated by people…. due to bad eating habits, toxins etc..
