The estimates are between 700,000 and 900,000 per year that lose their lives to heart disease. Those figures are for America alone, and are for one year . The Articles mention that most of these folks are obese. Is also mentioned that the problem is worsening every year.
I was obese for probably around 20 years myself. I can’t figure out why I did that and let that stand. The reason I changed it was fear of going back in the Intensive Care Unit again.
I think those figures come out to anywhere between 2000 and 2500 people every single day dying from heart disease.
Science shows that placing one foot in front of the other leads to some seriously impressive mental and physical benefits.

Thank you LD
Dr. Potter says that on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest excitement level, he is at 7 at this point.

This legislation provides NIH with the opportunity to not only expand its current efforts on Down syndrome and commonly co-occurring conditions in individuals with Down syndrome that are also seen in the general population, such as Alzheimer’s disease/dementia, autism, cataracts, celiac disease, congenital heart disease, diabetes, and immune system . . . . .

Looking at the category tables for money assigned to disease, for research, Type 1 and Type 2 are lumped together. In those tables the NIH estimates that from 5 to 10% of diabetes is Type 1.
My gut tells me that most folks think Type 1 diabetes is a done deal, don’t need research, it can be controlled, let’s move on.
For those that feel that way, there is no taking into account the lifestyle Type 1 diabetes dictates. It’s pretty damn rough. It’s a 24/7 issue for the parents, the patient and the siblings.
There is no cure, just treatment, and it’s expensive, time consuming, stressful and painful.
In my opinion, we can’t stop here, not even close to here. I’ve been near the trenches for a few days and I was absolutely shocked at what I saw.
Here’s a link to those tables . . .
Trying to learn more took me to the NIH Categorical Spending page this afternoon. It’s setup by disease in alphabetical order.
Just looking at the amount of disease names left me in awe of the responsibility they have.
