Congratulations, cancer! That’s right, for the first time ever, cancer has overtaken heart disease as the number one killer of Americans under 85. This raises the question: Can murder be far behind?
I believe we, as Americans, should make a concerted effort to make death at the hands of our fellow man the premiere way to die in this country. Between you and me, the title is there for the taking!
“This is a situation in which neither one of us wants to be No. 1” because far more deaths could be prevented, said Dr. Rose Marie Robertson, chief scientific officer of the American Heart Association.
You see? They’re asleep at the wheel! Which only came in at number 78, by the way! Think about a world with no disease, no bloated health insurance industry and a life expectancy of 36 years old! I know, it sounds like paradise, but this isn’t just the idle day dreams of a sillyheart, this is well within our power to accomplish. I think it honestly comes down to the fact that you just need to try a little harder.
