So the new 30 is 70. According to that study mentioned yesterday on CNN’s Situation Room, when you get to 70 years old you should be Just as if you are 30 years old.
Should this study amount to a news flash and breaking news? Judge for yourself! I will take it however, albeit with a grain of salt, as this interprets as better health stats. Most moths will gravitate to a light and for crying out loud, are we in the darkness where health care and health innovations are concerned!
It is not all out of sync then that some could believe this is nonsense and the paper should be burned on which it (The Study) was written on.
Some contend that man’s allotment is biblically 70 years (Three scores and ten) and if by special mightiness; that is if your genes are different in a good way, 80 years. This certainly holds water in my opinion as never have I seen or heard of a group of men at 80 years old running around like they are say 50 years old. Show me an island, a country, a state, a region where fifty percent of the population is eighty years old and I can believe or begin to believe the findings of that study as 70 years being the new 30. Only then could it make sense to me.
I bet I can be shown the isolated cases, cases of special mightiness, where people do live over eighty. Invariably though these have one foot in the grave and one foot on a banana peel. Their banana peal can soon slip under their feet and they do not wake up one night, as was the case of good ole Jack Lelanne, who died at age 96. JACK BELIEVED THAT PHYSICAL CULTURE AND NUTRITION WAS THE SALVATION OF AMERICA, AND HE HAD A POINT, which he certainly proved by his life style and the years that the garnished for himself?
Interestingly that same Situation Room session brought another health fact to the fore, that just lowballed this new age finding. It felt like somebody just gave you a tasty morsel and then as you were savoring the treat they box you in the face and the morsel came flying out. That was when they announced that younger women are having advanced cases of breast cancer.
If you see where I am going with this! The new 30 is 70 but younger women are having advanced cases of breast cancer!
Is this paradoxical to say the least or plain ridiculous. CNN is the news portal to the world and what would they do without Wolf, Anderson, and their well put together team I do not know. Sometimes though I wish they would put these facts in an analytical chamber and come with some product of insight so that simple people like myself can get a proper perspective on the issues.
Can you appreciate then why I have to take that 30/70 thing with a grain of salt? The question is how come the new 30 is 70 when young women are having advanced stages of cancer, a non-curable disease?
Ok! They will announce a cure for cancer soon! They will release it from the vault in which it has been locked up for years! They have finally come to the some moral appreciation that they have milked the unfortunates long enough through their band aid schemes! They have captured the cause of cancer and lock it away for good and have returned to eating right and living right, like Jack. Wouldn’t that be some great news? Oh if wishes were horses I am a beggar who would surely ride.
Today I heard of another friend who came down with prostate cancer. The number of Jamaicans, who have come down with this disease that we have made our own, where the world is concerned, is amazing. Indeed Jamaicans like myself have the highest incidence of the disease in the world. No one cares though Even when Dr. Henry Lowe, a fellow Jamaican, has discovered a cure (See Previous Blog) he remained minuscule and separated from the world. Oh Ted Turner and CNN why don’t you interview this guy? This could be a great step for humanity if we really want to bell this cat, and corral the devastation of Prostate Cancer.
I thank CNN for these news, but as a prostate cancer survivor who have been there done that, I continued to be tickled by these salacious information.
I continue to be hopeful though as soon no resident will say I am sick (Isaiah 33:24). In the meantime I do not try to save the world but try to furnish information that will give up a better view of the scene. Many more will suffer and many more will die but it does not have to be you, even if you are a Jamaican.
