The main reason Irish spend 2 to 3 times what they should on healthcare and prescription drugs is because Irish, along with all the other Western Nations, are 2 to 3 times more unhealthy than people in most other nations primarily because of their diet and a lack of exercise.
Today, more than 70 percent of Irish are overweight or medically obese. A figure that is double since the 1980s. Being overweight is just one of the symptoms of having a terrible diet, most Irish are also deficient in the basic vitamins and minerals necessary to keep the mind sharp and avoid major diseases like cancer, see the previous blog.
If you are overweight or obese, please get immediate help by changing your lifestyle. Already millions of Irish have diabetes and pre-diabetes mostly due to being overweight if you are one of them, you have a 70% chance of dying from heart disease or stroke. Whatsmore before you die, if you are obese, you will likely 'consume' much of your estate in medical expenses and will needlessly and selfishly be torturing yourself and those you love the most.
The biggest problem is that many obese people will read this, agree, and still sit on their backsides as they're so lacking in energy (physically, mentality and emotionally) to do anything about it!
I simply want to live a soulful and fulfilling life.
