  30. Change your Perception of Time

When comedians take a dig at big pharmaceutical companies who are promoting their drugs and other products aggressively in the media, we know that the public are becoming generally aware of health risks and want better and natural ways to stay healthy and live longer.

In his TV program, Bill Maher quipped: “But none of these plans address the real problem. We won’t stop being sick until we stop making ourselves sick. Even the most universal government health program can’t help y0u. They cannot outlaw unhealthy foods, or alcohol or cigarettes. The government isn’t your nanny. They subsidized illness because they have to – there is too much money in it. There is no money in healthy people. There is no money in dead people. The money is in the middle; people who are alive, sort off.. but with one or more chronic conditions which puts them in need of …(medication). Fifty years ago, children didn’t even get Type 2 Diabetes. Now it is an emerging epidemic. As are a long list of aliments which used to be rare and have now been mainstream.”

Food companies and pharmaceutical companies are always trying to convince us that we need their products to stay healthy and live longer so much so that many of us are confused and lose sight of the common sense way to stay healthy and live longer. Why do they do this? Because it is big business and big bucks for food companies and pharmaceutical companies. The more products we consume, the more new products they will put into the market. Products that are not for our health but which we consume because they “make us feel good”. There is little money to be made from eating natural, healthy foods packed with nutrients. Foods that our forefathers consumed. When I say “natural and healthy” foods, I don’t mean the claims these companies make on their product packaging or in their advertising campaigns. Processed foods can hardly be called “natural and healthy” when is is processed by unsaturated oils, flavored by sugar, salt and other less than desirable ingredients like MSG. “Natural” means food as found in nature and not modified with chemicals or substances to preserve, enhance growth or flavor, or boost their marketability.

Are you prepared for a long life?

One last thing about longevity. More people are living beyond 100 years years as a result of better health and medical intervention. If you intend to live beyond 100 years, you will need to ensure that your finances is sufficient to see you through your golden years. One way is to get into a business that provides an passive income long after you have “retired”. Are you prepared for a long and happy life?

Here is the Bill Maher video about “The Pharmers’ Market” on YouTube as mentioned earlier in this article:
