American Epidemic of Obesity – The Real Causes

American Epidemic of Obesity – The Real Causes

Is the human race deteriorating so fast that it’s heading for self-extinction? The facts make it clear, that unless the majority of the western world makes major changes in their life styles, this may very well be the case.[1] Read my article: Epigenetic Transgenerational Inheritance – How the Human Race is Being Mutated – And What You Need to Know to Protect Yourself and Your Family.

The international obesity epidemic is widespread, nondiscriminatory, and deadly. But do we really understand all of the factors underlying this alarming trend?[2] Up until the nineteen eighties, obesity was seen as an anomaly, but gradually overweight became the norm. During the past 20 years, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States and rates continue to climb. In 2010, no state had a prevalence of obesity less than 20%. Thirty-six states had a prevalence of 25% or more; 12 of these states (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia) had a prevalence of 30% or more.[3] 

According to News Medical,[4] government and private sector health experts now estimate that 65 percent of America’s adults are overweight and 31 percent of adults are obese and at risk for chronic diseases. The link between obesity and hypertension is well known, but the exact nature of the association between the two disorders remains unclear.   

Over 65% of Americans are overweight and gradually moving towards obesity. Obesity is more than a cosmetic concern because it increases a person’s risk for developing high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, heart failure, inflammation and much more:[5]It’s estimated that overweight and obesity cause 14% to 20% of all cancer-related deaths each year. They include: Breast (in postmenopausal women), Colon, Uterine, Kidney, Esophageal, Thyroid, Gallbladder, Ovarian, Pancreatic, Cervical, Liver, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Multiple Myeloma, and Prostate.[6] 

Going back to when I was in grade school I remember only one person who was obese. We always thought that this person had a severe medical condition related to a glandular disorder. We all felt very sorry for her and wondered how long she might live. No one ever dreamed that this would become almost normal.

It is utterly shocking to see how many fat people are in our country. I have never been able rid my self of horrible and shocking feelings of seeing men who look like they are ready to give birth to a horse. They are the ones most likely will create colon cancer for themselves.

We need to know what people are doing that causes this outrageous epidemic. Could it be all the aluminum oxide and barium dropping down from the skies; fallout from the “Chemtrails” that remain in the sky for many hours as opposed to contrails that disappear in a minute or two? The lakes around Mt. Shasta area in Northern California have 1000 times more aluminum then they did 20 years ago. It’s a fact that aluminum, barium, aluminum oxide, strontium, microscopic fibers and oil-based products are dropping upon us almost every day; these are not intrinsic to normal jet fuel. We have long known that aluminum is a major contributor to memory problems and especially Alzheimer’s and we are seeing a significant increase in this dis-ease, especially in the west coast area. Combine this with all the auto exhaust we have to breathe; could this be a major cause of obesity? See video about Chemtrails.[7]

I do not think so, as I’m not overweight, nor are most of the people I know, many of whom live under jet pathways and are highly bombarded with chemtrails and contrails. Though there is no doubt that these Chemtrails, the ones that linger for hours, are damaging us in many ways, however, weight gain does not appear to be one of them.

When I was in Chile, I looked out my hotel room and saw about 500 people walking around a square and what struck me more than anything else was how healthy they looked. I was stunned. My first thought was, I remember Americans looking that healthy, but that was a long time ago. Then I thought, what is different in our country now compared to Chile and other South American countries where obesity does not exist? What is the cause? Who or what is responsible?

There were no chemtrails, nor did they feed hormones to their animals to make them big and fat or produce more milk.  Though many of the people there eat meat, they did not eat nearly as much as Americans do. They have very little processed food, no soy products and their diet was mostly made from fresh produce and beans, and they had not succumbed to pharmaceuticals as much and very little pesticides sprayed on their crops. Lucky them!!!

In my opening statement, Is the human race deteriorating so fast that we are heading for self-extinction?, my feeling is, the majority of North Americans are indeed heading for extinction. Here are some more facts that provide strong evidence that we are without doubt moving in that direction and have been for over 60 year. In 1955, 0.5% of American male college students were sterile.

  • In 1976, it was 25%.
  • Approximately 15% of women in their prime cannot conceive and this is increasing.
  • Massive sterility has been linked to pesticides sprayed on our food, but other toxins, along with the toxins formed by congestion in the body, and acids also play a part in this.

A lady came to one of my seminars, walked up on the stage and asked to speak about what her deep cleansing did for her. I stepped aside and she held up a photograph of her baby daughter and with tears in her eyes, said to the audience, She was born, thanks to Dr. Anderson. I was a bit taken back as I had never seen her before. She explained that she could never get pregnant and her doctor finally told her that she would forever be unable to bear a child. After that, she went on my cleansing program and followed it to a tee. The results; she became healthier and was able to have a very healthy child.

Once we understand the importance of what toxic and acids producing foods do to us, we’ll be open to understand the main causes of obesity. Keep in mind one very important fact. When any problem begins and it continues to worsen for over 60 years, you can be sure that is a very serious problem is brewing.

Some statistics:

At the beginning of the 20th Century 99 nations joined with the U.S. Public Health Service in tracking national health levels. America maintained first or second position until after World War II. Since then four drastic alterations occurred in our society.

  1. Chemicalization of farming methods began to replace natural organic farming methods.
  2. Allopathic (conventional) medicine drastically replaced natural medicine with experimental and unnatural chemicals classified as drugs and other anti-natural harsh treatments such as X-ray and radiation. The reason that drugs replaced natural methods of healing is this: drugs can be patented; natural products such as herbs cannot. Therefore drugs make massive profits; natural products do not.
  3. Eating habits drastically changed; acid-forming meats became readily available along with advertisements that made people think that they must eat meat. Processed foods and fast foods became the norm.
  4. To make it perfectly clear, experimental drugs, radiation and other unnatural medical tools replaced traditional and natural God-made herbs, nutrition, diet, and other more natural medical paraphernalia.

Consequently, the health status of the America people began to plummet.

  • By 1978, America dropped from international 1st place to 79th.
  • In 1980, we were 95th![8]
  • In 1987 through 2000, America competes with Germany for rock bottom.[9]

In the early 1900’s about 3% of the American people had cancer. In 1996 over 50% of the American people developed cancer and close to 30% died from it. Today, most cancers continue to increase, as do strokes, lung diseases, diabetes, and brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, and Mad Cow Disease. The Merck Manuel, the medical doctor’s bible, states that over 98% of Americans will develop Diverticulitis if they live long enough. The number of Asthma cases has more than doubled since 1980 and nearly 15 million Americans, including 5 million children suffer from it.[10] A recent study found that one out of eleven, or 9%, of Californians have Asthma and it is higher among children than adults, as each generation becomes more and more compromised.[11] Furthermore, not only have most known diseases increased, but also new, previously unheard of diseases, such as AIDS and a multitude of “new viruses”, continue to develop. Alarmingly, the average life span among Americans is now dropping.[12]

In 2003, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a disturbing article verifying that America is, pitifully, one of the sickest nations in the modern world. According to this report, Germany, home of the major pharmaceuticals, was the only other “developed” nation that rated lower than America.[13]

The Journal of the American Medical Association also sounded another alarm. It was reported that next to heart disease and cancer, the third cause of death in America is iatrogenic, that is to say, doctor caused. In 1994, 225,000 doctor-caused deaths constituted the third leading cause of death in the United States, second only to Heart Disease and Cancer.[14] All these figures continue to escalate year after year; never improving always become worse and worse. In 1996, 392,556 Americans died as a result of conventional medicine (iatrogenic disease), accounting for 17.34% of all deaths in America.[15]

In the last 10 years, 18 million Americans suffered serious, toxic side effects from medical drugs and were hospitalized. Since 1996 that number has averaged over 2 million Americans a year![16] Furthermore, over 1/3 of the people admitted to hospitals are there because of the toxic effects of medications, and nearly 700,000 Americans die each year of secondary side effects (strokes, heart attacks, etc.) from medications.[17] If these deaths had been rated as drug or doctor caused deaths, then conventional medicine would be rated at the number one cause of death.[18] However, they are not recorded as medical fatalities, but instead, are registered as death caused by the disease being treated. Did you know that many pharmaceutical drugs cause irreversible damage to DNA and so can pesticides and herbicides sprayed on commercially grown produce?

The above paragraphs were written in 2003 and since then we come to find that the figures given for iatrogenic disease (doctor caused) was way below the reality. After extensive detailed investigation, the truth was revealed by doctors Gary Null, PhD; Carolyn Dean MD, ND; Martin Feldman, MD; Debora Rasio, MD; and Dorothy Smith, PhD in an article entitled Death by Medicine. I quote: The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year. It is now evident that the American medical system (conventional) is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. (By contrast, the number of deaths attributable to heart disease in 2001 was 699,697, while the number of deaths attributable to Cancer was 553,251.5).[19]

In another article Dr. Null wrote: Dr. Lepay from Harvard, considered the United States expert on this subject, reported that deaths caused by conventional medical doctors were over 1,000,000 (one million). And our figures and his figures do not account for anyone who has an adverse reaction at home – only in institutional settings, so the figure is much higher.” [20] 

I recall so well, back in the early eighties as I was studying under Dr. Bernard Jensen, ND, DC PhD, when he made a very concerning remark. We were discussing the science of Iridology, which he called The Master Science, and for very good reasons. He said, someday you’ll have a family in your office where there are at least 3 generations; grandmother, mother, children. Observe the constitutional strength of each generation and you will see so very clearly that each generation is becoming significantly weaker. It is easy to see the constitutional strength in a person’s iris and sure enough my opportunity came many times. The first time it simply scared me and it was then that his point hit home. In every case the children had significant weaknesses that the mother did not have and the mother was obviously weaker than then her mother, the grandmother. People born before 1940 had a strength that was amazing compared to now.

 Dr. William Donald Kelley, DDS, MS had developed a Cancer cure to treat himself of Pancreatic Cancer. Over a period of several decades he accomplished a 93% average cure rate of all cancers, which amounted to around 7,000 people. Sloan Kettering Foundation (SKF) investigated his claims and patients. I have a copy of the letter sent to the President of the SKF from the man they hired to investigate the claims and stories told by Dr. Kelley’s patients. It stated that after contacting thousands of his patients, there was on an average a 93% success rate. Shortly afterward, the main ingredients in the products, (enzymes from a pharmaceutical co.) were eliminated and the success was gone. My point is this, at a certain time just before the end, Dr. Kelly told his students this not to expect the same success he had when treating people born after 1970 (not sure about the date). Because those born after that time are much weaker than those born earlier. He also predicted that those born after 1980 will be lucky to live past 50, because genetic strength has deteriorated so badly.

Getting closer to the cause: New Interesting Findings: A startling discovery has caused medical science to consider a whole new concept of what may be causing the obesity epidemic. According to John DiBaise, MD, a Mayo Clinic Arizona gastroenterologist and lead author for Mayo Clinic Proceedings, several animal studies suggest that gut microbiota are involved in regulating weight and that modifying these bacteria could one day be a treatment option for obesity. One study cited by the authors observed that young, conventionally-reared mice have a significantly higher body fat content than a laboratory-bred, germ-free strain of mice that lack these bacteria, even though they consumed less food than their germ-free counterparts. When the same research group transplanted gut microbiota from normal mice into germ-free mice, the germ-free mice experienced a 60 percent increase in body fat within two weeks, without any increase in food consumption or obvious differences in energy expenditure.

Another study of 12 obese humans found distinct differences between lean and obese participants, when they monitored the type and number of bacteria found in participants’ stool samples, before and after the diet changes.

Another study followed children from birth to age 7 and analyzed stool samples collected at 6 and 12 months. The children who were normal weight at age 7 had distinctly different bacteria in their samples from those collected from overweight-obese children, suggesting that differences in the composition of the gut microbiota precede overweight-obesity.

Overweight-obesity is not the only problem that may arise when our guts host bacteria that are not similar to those who are healthy and lean. In 400 B.C., Hippocrates was quoted as saying “death sits in the bowels” and “bad digestion is the root of all evil”. He was a very wise being who was labeled as the father of medicine. Intestinal microbes that are not considered “pathogenic” can be a contributing cause of good health or poor health; depending upon what they are. An imbalance among the colonies of microorganisms, bacteria, yeast, viruses, parasites, etc. is called Dysbiosis and can result in many health problems and has been associated with:

Gut Dysbiosis[21] is directly associated with the following health issues. Gut Dysbiosis occurs when the natural-to-human microbes given to us from human mother’s milk have been reduced or eliminated.

Recent research finally figured out that intestinal microorganisms play a far greater role in human health than previously imagined. Scientists came to realize that the incorrect combination of intestinal bacteria directly influences the risk for obesity and many different diseases. Obese individuals have more dominate populations of lactobacillus bacteria in their intestines than lean and healthy individuals, who have a dominant population of bifidobacterium which is what is given to us my human mother’s milk.

There can be many causes of obesity, but the cause of the obesity epidemic had never been publicized until August of 2013, when doctor Martin Blaser, at the Departments of Medicine and Microbiology at the New York University School of Medicine presented his findings on YouTube. His talk, Microbiome and Obesity was very worth listening to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6b-fHqFhqyk

Antibiotics have now been identified as the primary cause of the obesity epidemic.[23] This has been confirmed by a major study at the New York University School of Medicine. In 2009 to 2010, over 78 million adults and 12.5 million children were obese in the US. Imagine, one drug harming so many millions of people in the US alone.[24] Think about how many of these people make regular trips to the doctor? Is there big money in drugs?

    What a wonderful. informative article this is—Thank you so very much
    for publishing this. I am so interested in alternate ways of healing
    and not going to regular doctors as all they do is push pills and
    never getting to the root of one’s issue–Than you again.
    Keep up the great work.
