The point of this compilation of facts is to teach you that if you want to live a life like everyone else, and die like everyone else, just do what everyone else does! Medical research and the Bible both agree that we should live to have 80-120 healthy years! The Average American plan is a recipe for an early demise. Look at your life compared to the average. Maybe it is time to make a few changes? Eat right (try an organic vegetable once in a while), stop watching TV, get adjusted, and think about how God gave the body an ability to heal itself (if we don't destroy it first) before reaching for a drug.
