A sick world: We live longer, with more pain and illness
LONDON (Reuters)- The world has made huge progress fighting killer infectious diseases, but as a result we now lead longer and sicker lives, with health problems that cause us years of pain, disability and mental distress.
This "devastating irony", as researchers describe it, is the main conclusion of a five-year study that forms the most comprehensive assessment of global health in the history of medicine, according to the journal publishing the research.
The Global Burden of Disease study, led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at Washington University, finds that countries face a wave of financial and social costs from rising numbers of people living with disease and injury.
Among other findings are that while malnutrition has dropped down the rankings as a cause of death and illness, the effects of excessive eating are taking its place. Smoking and alcohol use have also overtaken child hunger to become the second and third leading health risks, behind high blood pressure.
Over three million deaths globally were attributable in 2010 to excess body weight, more than three times as many as malnutrition.
"We've gone from a world 20 years ago where people weren't getting enough to eat to a world now where too much food and unhealthy food - even in developing countries - is making us sick," said Majid Ezzati of Imperial College London, one of the lead researchers.
However, the major health problems now are diseases and conditions that don't kill, but make us ill. We now live longer with more health problems that cause pain, impair mobility, and prevent us seeing, hearing and thinking clearly.
"Very few people are walking around with perfect health, and as people age, they accumulate health conditions," said Christopher Murray, the IHME's director. "This means we should recalibrate what life will be like for us in our 70s and 80s. It also has profound implications for health systems as they set priorities."
The study, as the largest systematic effort to quantify world health levels and trends, involved more than 480 researchers from 302 institutions and 50 countries. It was funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and published as seven papers in The Lancet medical journal on Thursday.

Blacks have been looking for a physical messiah and have forgotten that Christ has already come and made a way for them to be free.

Thats a bunch of bullshit! 1st of all you aint black & neither is whom ever you were quoting so how can either of you get into the psyche of a black person? 2nd, you don't go putting in applications everyday only to be told their not hiring. Then turn around & have a white person working in the same store you just applied. There's just not enough jobs for all eligible americans & the black folks are the targets of undercover racism. Thats a fraction of the problem of america. Yes this is an american problem, not just am african american problem folks. Civil rights is admired more for the sacrifice then the outcome of all the sacrifice giving. I call it the piece of the pie theory. Americas authorities believe if that if they give black america a piece of the pie we'll stop complaining. Though true in past generations, todays generation of african americans aren't sold on that theory. We feel like if they won't give it to us, we'll just take it if need be illegally. Basically what you stated was black people were obedient in the past. What you dont take into account is my mother's generation was one generation closer to the times of slavery & more prone to obedience cause of their parents fear of what they saw coming up in the early 1900s. That fear is gone & will never come back. Everybody pretends to be blind to the fact of racial inequality so our generation is blind to the laws set in place to enforce that inequality. Someone please look up the lowest paying jobs & the percentages per nationality. I haven't & this is not fact, but I'm willing to bet black folks hold the title. As I stated in earlier post", this is a new america,a new era. My people have no problem working a 9 to 5. All we ask is to be compensated for such hard work. None of what you said is even remotely close to the mind of black people in america. The reason white people voted Obama in office is they want to get past the racial inequality in this country. They were smart enough to realize that the better black people do the better of the country is!

Wow you are f*cking pathetic. Trying to hide McCain's & Graham's lying actions by bringing up a pledge that was not met.
McCain & Graham are trying to ruin the career of a person for political gain.
I guess for a lowlife POS like you, that is OK.
Even letterman thinks he's a lying sack of sht.

" DAVID LETTERMAN, HOST: Here's what upset me last night, this playing fast and loose with facts. And the President Obama cites the op-ed piece that Romney wrote about Detroit,“Let them go bankrupt, let them go bankrupt,” and last night he brings it up again.“Oh, no, Governor, you said let them go bankrupt, blah blah blah, let them go bankrupt.” And Mitt said,“No, no, check the thing, check the thing, check the thing.”

Now, I don't care whether you're Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth; you want the contender to be lying. And so what we found out today or soon thereafter that, in fact, the President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece. I felt discouraged.

RACHEL MADDOW: Because the "Let Detroit go bankrupt" headline you feel like was inappropriate?

LETTERMAN: Well, the fact the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he's the president of course he's right. Well, it turned out no, he was taking liberties with that."

Forced union membership should not be a job requirement, given that it has absolutely no relationship to your experience, skills, or qualifications. It's about the same as requiring an employee to be white, or a Christian.
White and Christian = GOP membership requirement.

Your "...things will work out for the best..." scenario is half the problem. 50 years ago, the 'black community' still believed hard work and consistent churchgoing, was the way to provide a future for their kids, just like our parents did...but their kids looked around 30 years ago, and said "That's bullshit - it's worse now than it was then, and now there are a bunch more of us. Hard work for low pay got our parents nowhere, and it's not getting us anywhere either."

The black community is as full of realists as the white one is.
