Health Issues


Introduction

Health issues affect our current and future enjoyment of life and the survival of ourselves, and our decedents. This is especially true recently as the whole world struggles with the Covid-19 pandemic. Although we have struggled for a long time with the many problems resulting from the way we do and do not deal with our health, this pandemic has helped to highlight a number of them. I will mention a few of these problems here, and discuss more of them in a bit.

Our Human overpopulation and overcrowding, and all our global travel have created the perfect environment for the creation and spread of diseases. With around 8 billion people, who are often packed close together, there are plenty of hosts for a disease to infect and to spread to. In addition, with all the global travel, a new disease or variant can spread around the world before anyone knows it even exists.

There are also a lot of people who are in poor health who are more susceptible to becoming sick. Part of the problem stems from too many people living in poverty who cannot get enough to eat, or who cannot get healthy food, and who cannot get proper medical care. Too many people also live with too much pollution, which can weaken and sicken people. Even those who are well off enough to eat well, get good medical care, and live in less polluted areas, may live an overly sedentary lifestyle which can lead to things like obesity and diabetes.

There is also a lot of misinformation spreading around, which can lead people to not avail themselves of lifesaving vaccines and drugs. Although some people can have a bad reaction to some vaccines and drugs, the CDC and FDA today help to ensure that our vaccines and drugs are safe. Vaccines are especially important in helping prevent severe illness, and slowing the spread of diseases and the creation of new variants. However, this only works if people get the vaccines instead of listening to the misinformation spread by the anti-vaccine charlatans.
