By now, you probably know that we are currently experiencing a national death spiral.
The number of Americans that are dying of various causes, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and HIV/AIDS has surpassed 1.4 million, and is expected to surpass 5 million by 2020.
The country’s rate of deaths from all causes has nearly tripled in the last 10 years.
And the country’s suicide rate has nearly quadrupled over the same period.
Despite the fact that many of us know we are living through the most intense economic downturn in decades, the numbers don’t appear to be getting any less dire.
According to a recent study by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, the rate of people living in poverty is projected to jump from 4.1 percent in 2020 to 15.9 percent by 2030.
In other words, if we are going to survive this recession, we will have to figure out how to survive the death spiral and get back on our feet quickly.
The first step we should take to getting our act together is to remember that death statistics are really just a proxy for our overall state of living.
In many cases, our economic and social conditions will be much worse than those of our predecessors in the 1800s, and this is why the economic downturn will not end until our social and economic conditions improve.
So, in order to make the transition to a healthier, more stable, and more productive society, it is important to remember the statistics that we have in front of us.
So, let’s go over some of the most important numbers that you need to know in order for us to get back to a more productive economy.
Number 1: The death rate has quadrupled since 1980, and the number of deaths per 100,000 people has doubled.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the death rate increased by 17 percent between 1980 and 2010, and by 20 percent between 2010 and 2020.
Number 2: The number and rate of chronic conditions has increased dramatically.
As of 2020, more than 20 million Americans were living with a chronic condition, including diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis.
Although the number is still declining, the number and incidence of chronic illnesses has risen dramatically.
In addition, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, approximately half of all Americans have had at least one of the five conditions by the age of 65.
In order to stay on top of the death statistics, it’s important to know that not all of the deaths are preventable.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that the rate for diabetes was 6.3 percent in 2016, and it was 3.8 percent in 2019.
For the same reasons, the CDC also reported that chronic heart disease was twice as common in 2015 as it was in 2000.
The prevalence of high blood pressure was about 10 percent in 2015 and it rose to 14 percent in 2017.
And, of course, the most worrying statistic of all is that there are more people living with the disease today than in 1980.
The rate of new cases of chronic disease has quadruple since 1980.
These numbers are a sobering reminder that we can’t continue to live our lives as if our health is our sole concern.
And it is imperative that we take care of ourselves, and we need to think about how we can get back into the driver’s seat and put more emphasis on the wellbeing of our families and communities.
Number 3: The average American is now living with an unhealthy level of stress, depression, and anxiety.
Over the past decade, the American Society of Addiction Medicine has documented that the stress levels of many of our most vulnerable citizens have increased dramatically, with more than half of Americans reporting symptoms of depression, anxiety, or stress in the previous year.
The fact is, our lives are getting more stressful every day, and while we are not in danger of dying from this crisis, it does not mean we should not be aware of it.
Many of us are aware of the fact of the increasing number of people who have been diagnosed with a psychiatric illness, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, and are experiencing these symptoms.
But it is vital to remember, that the majority of these people have never suffered a real-life event that would lead to a mental illness.
And this is something that we must pay attention to and not let the fear and anxiety that we feel affect our everyday life.
While many of the people that suffer from a mental health condition will often feel that they are powerless, they need to remember to do what they can to overcome the stress and depression that they may be experiencing.
One of the best ways to do this is to learn to embrace your feelings and feelings of hopelessness and to try to find the joy and meaning in life.
And, if you can do this, you will find peace and happiness.
