This is a day to practice the power of choice.
Continuing blogging on YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Last evening, it was very hard to fall asleep; for this subject- the coronavirus was weighing heavy on my mind while looking back from nearly a year ago, when all our lives changed. The media has placed fear into us, for some have been lockdown for nearly a year and kids have not been in school.
Any kind of death is perhaps the most heartbreaking emotion one can face. Therefore; as continuing with the immune system, I wanted to focus on the top three diseases that have taken our loved ones lives this year. All three diseases have something to do with a weak immune system.
This is a day to practice the power of choice. Choose the quality of mood you want-that is, whether you'll adopt a positive or negative attitude-the choice is up to you! Your goal: to realize that you do have the ability to enhance your life each day!
Education and knowledge within ourselves do not bring inner peace to individuals, families or the society in which they live. Education combined with warm-heartedness, a sense of concern for the well-being of others, has much more positive results. If you have a great deal of knowledge, but you're governed by negative emotions, then you tend to use your knowledge in negative ways.
Therefore, while you are learning, don't forget the importance of warm-heartedness.
''Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you, as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you but as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
Circumstances and situations do color life, but you have been given the mind to choose what the color will be. ''-John Homer Miller.
Continuing blogging on YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
As I have been going over material regarding coronavirus, I was surprised to see the facts that came across my eyes. First, we must realize that these types of diseases that I’m blogging about today are due to a weak immune system.
Every day as we step out into the environment, we face risk. Its something we take for granted; our lives are precious. Its amazing the number of people that died combining (first) heart disease and (second) cancer which far out reached coronavirus.
One fact that was a surprise for several months is that we are reminded everyday from the media that as of the end of 2020 the number of deaths from coronavirus was 518,363. This has become the third leading cause of death overall for those between the ages of 45 and 84, following after heart disease and cancer. For those over age 85, coronavirus was the second leading cause of death, surpassing cancer and following behind heart disease.
So, heart disease is the number one leading death in the United States and cancer disease is second, even over the coronavirus.
For people ages 35-44, coronavirus was slightly lower than suicide, heart disease, and cancer.
For those under age 35, drug overdoses, suicide, and car crashes remained the leading causes of death.
Globally heart disease cases nearly doubled over the period — from 271 million in 1990 to 523 million in 2019, and the number of heart disease deaths rose from 12.1 million to 18.6 million. In 2019, the majority of heart disease deaths were attributed to ischemic heart disease and stroke, with a steady increase from 1990. (Ischemic heart disease is a term for heart problems caused by narrowed arteries.)
Last year, heart disease was the underlying cause of 9.6 million deaths among men and 8.9 million deaths among women globally. More than 6 million of those deaths occurred in people between 30 and 70 years of age.
Heart disease has killed 661,000 people in 2020.
Estimated numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in 2020 (In 2020, there will be an estimated 1.8 million new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,520 cancer deaths in the United States. This shows me that there are more cancer patients that died, then there were from coronavirus.
What is shocking, in 2020; there will be approximately 89,500 cancer cases diagnosed and about 9,270 cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults ages 15 to 39 years in the US. These patients are often grouped with younger or older patient populations, which masks important differences in cancer distribution, tumor biology, and survivorship.
As Dan and I focus on the statistics, knowing that Dan has had a heart attack and has 8 stents; plus, both of us has had cancer – we learned through knowledge and experience to build our immune up system. Through changing our lifestyle; food, supplements, exercising and meditation; we have inner peace. Instead of fear, our lives now have hope.
Until next time, I’m leaving with this saying, never give up hope. The word prosperity itself comes from the root word ‘prospere,’ meaning to go forward in hope. Faith, hope and love will help solve any problem. You don’t need faith to have hope, but you need hope to have faith. Hope is the enemy of fear. Fear says you’ll fail. Hope says it’s possible that you’ll succeed. Fear says you’ll lose your job. Hope says you’ll find a better one. Fear says time is running out. Hope says hang in there a little while longer. —John Harricharan

Where I'm seating you may not see what I see. So therefore, you will not understand what I understand. So you may not do what I would do? Something to think about!
