Had Adam and Eve not given in to the temptation of the serpent in the Garden, healthcare would never have become a household word. In the first place, Adam was created with a body that was meant to live forever. When a physical flesh and blood body is immune to everything that can possibly harm it, why would some type of government-provided, or subsidized, healthcare ever be needed? Simple question with a simple answer: it wouldn’t.
But we all know the result of the deception Satan used to corrupt the entire human race. The sin of Adam and Eve activated the curse of sin and death that Paul mentions in Romans 8:2. Every human being since Adam has been subject to that law except one, the Man Christ Jesus. He alone managed to live each day of His life totally free from that law and everything that the law brings with it. Had He not willingly offered His body a sacrifice for our sins, He would never have had a single moment of sickness, disease or pain.
You might be thinking, “Yes, but that was Jesus. We can’t expect to live a sinless perfect life like His, with no sickness, can we? I mean, we are still under the curse that causes us to age and be subject to physical infirmities, so getting sickness and disease is just something we have to expect and put up with, right?”… read more
(Natural News) Poor diet, financial insecurity, and falling standards of living are factors that contribute to the rising incidence of Victorian-era diseases — such as gout, rickets, scarlet fever, and syphilis — in modern-day Great Britain.
The U.K. Faculty of Public Health (FPH) stressed that poor wage growth and persistent inflation has greatly affected nutrition intake among poorer families in the U.K. This proves true in the case of obesity, as the condition remains to be the biggest food poverty issue. According to the FPH, poorer families were forced to opt for cheaper, mostly processed foods in place of nutritious foods.
Clinicians and hospitals noted an increasing number of children suffering from diet-related diseases, which was a result of limited access to healthy foods. Health experts also observed a 19% increase in the number of people hospitalized for malnutrition during the previous 12 months.

(CNN) — While Republicans are pushing to drop the requirement of Obamacare that compels Americans to get insurance, another move in a separate bill could compel employees to participate in workplace wellness programs that collect their and their families’ health and genetic data.
The controversial bill is called the Preserving Employee Wellness Program Act, introduced in the House on March 2 by Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-North Carolina.
The bill would allow employers to penalize employees if they don’t join workplace wellness programs that collect this kind of data…. [read more]
(Natural News) Do you really know what is going to be on your plate when you purchase seafood? There’s a good chance you don’t — and maybe you don’t want to know. Seafood laced with antibiotics is flooding the marketplace here in the U.S., and if that isn’t disturbing enough, most of this seafood is coming from China — where it was most likely raised on pig feces.
Upwards of 80 percent of the seafood in the U.S. is imported, and a good portion of that is of Chinese origin. In 2016, it was estimated that nearly 30 percent of the seafood Americans eat actually comes from China. In 2014, $2.9 billion worth of seafood was imported from the nation, making it the third largest importer to the States.
As Bloomberg describes, livestock pens are scattered among the Chinese fisheries. To feed the fish, they simply wash the feces down a pipe that empties out into a pond, and the fish are taken care of. Would you knowingly eat fish that had spent its life in a pond of excrement? Probably not. But, this method of “recycling” has been used in Chinese agriculture for thousands of years. What fattens the pigs also fattens up the fish. Beyond the sanitary concerns of such a process, the introduction of antibiotics to animal feed has served to create an even bigger threat to public health…. [read more]
(Natural News) A new study shows an alarming trend in bowel cancer: millennials, or those born between 1980 and 1995, have four times the likelihood of developing rectal tumors originating in the large intestine than those born in the 1950s. Young people also have double the risk of colon tumors, and this is being blamed on poor diets and a lack of exercise.
Experts like the American Cancer Society’s Dr. Rebecca Siegel are calling for educational campaigns and earlier screenings as well as a stronger emphasis on active lifestyles and healthy eating.
Diseases like bowel cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, have traditionally been associated with the elderly, but an affinity for unhealthy food has led to an epidemic in younger people. A shift in the general population’s eating habits toward a diet that is low in fiber and high in processed meats such as sausage and bacon is believed to be one of the main culprits…. [read more]
