~~New Health Rankings: Of 17 Nations, U.S. Is Dead Last~~
Americans are sick and getting sicker. Researchers were surprised to find a “strikingly consistent and pervasive” pattern of poorer health at all stages of life, from infancy to childhood to adolescence to young adulthood to middle and old age.
Compared to people in other developed nations, Americans endure some of the worst rates of heart disease, lung disease, obesity, and diabetes.
What do Americans have in common?
Could it be that 80% of the food we eat has been polluted with genetically modified organisms that have foreign genes forced into their DNA to allow them to withstand heavy dousing with toxic herbicides? Or perhaps it is the fact that much of our so called “food” is actually an EPA registered pesticide?
We’re dying to know!
Without a label, there is no traceability, no accountability and no liability.
We’ve known for years that Americans tend to be overweight and sedentary, and that our health care system, despite being the priciest in the world, produces some less-than-plum results. Health nerds who closely follow the news may even have known that we live shorter lives than people in other rich nations, and that infants in the U.S. die from various causes at far higher rates.
But a fresh report, tapped vast stores of data to compare the health of affluent nations and delivered a worrisome new message: Americans’ health is even worse than we thought, ranking below 16 other developed nations.
Among the most striking of the report’s findings are that, among the countries studied, the U.S. has:
Not that one factor is likely to be able to explain everything. The panelists identified a host of factors: More than other countries, our health care system is fragmented, unaffordable for many people, and short on primary care. Of the countries studied, we have the highest rate of children living in poverty. More of our communities are built around cars, which may discourage exercise.
GMOs explained: public service announcement from the Health Ranger/Natural News

This short, 3-minute video is the perfect way to introduce new people to the subject of GMOs.
The video reveals where GMOs come from, why they’re used and why they cause organ damage and cancer in mammals. It also explains how to avoid GMOs by shopping for USDA certified organic foods.
The short duration of the video makes it perfect for viewing by new people who either aren’t familiar with the problem of GMOs or who don’t want to sit through a long-duration documentary.
Also covered in the short video is the concept of “genetic pollution” — how GMOs threaten the viability of global agriculture by turning the entire planet into a mad science genetics experiment with potentially catastrophic results.
We ALL fight the fight!!
We ALL are ONE!!
