Defeat doesn't finish a man - quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits. - Richard Nixon
It's amazing by looking at the chart how much cancer and heart desease have gone up and contributes to more deaths. It's what we're eating (and not eating) along, as a whole, with very little exercise. People back then walked everywhere and did manuel labor that increased their heart rate. They also ate mostly grains, vegetables, and fruits.....meat was a delicacy. Now, you can stop at the nearest "heart clogger" and get anything you want in a matter of minutes....Of course your odds of dying of consumption went down considerably...

There is some great news on here: First, watching college football doesn't even make the list, so that seems to be a healthy activity.
Nor is Auburn Undercover on the list. Therefore, if I can just stay on here indefinitely . . .
Warning, here comes a glass is half full view:
I tell you what, if we make as much progress over the next 200 years, we will be in good shape. The major diseases back then barely even show up now. Just think if the same thing happens to this newer chart 200 years from now. I would love to know my great great grandkids won't have to worry about cancer and/or heart disease.
kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
I think the most disturbing thing of all on this chart is the 1.2 million suicides. God help us!
Auburn people feel a deep and passionate responsibility to uphold standards not written on paper, but lived from the heart.
I look at that data and see things a bit differently. Mainly thinking about the advances in treating infectious disease that allowed people to start living long enough to get cardiac disease and cancer.
But sitting around and eating fast food is not that great either.

The reason Cardiovascular Disease and Cancer are up is b/c we are all living long enough to see them. Life expectancy in the US has gone from roughly 47 in 1900 to 80 today. :-)
