Healthcare Crisis

Example Of About Us Page
It’s Time We Take Responsibility

We called it Healthcare but it is really “Unhealthcare”, as we only need care when we are unhealthy. If we as a nation were healthy, we wouldn’t be producing these staggering statistics:

Obesity

More than one-third (34.9% or 78.6 million) of U.S. adults are obese, almost 70% are overweight.
Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, are some of the leading causes of preventable death.
The estimated annual health care costs of obesity-related illness are a staggering $190.2 billion or nearly 21% of annual medical spending in the United States.
In addition to growing health care costs attributed to obesity, the nation will incur higher costs for disability and unemployment benefits. Businesses are suffering due to obesity-related job absenteeism ($4.3 billion annually). These costs also will continue to rise.

Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is an increasingly prevalent illness that is largely preventable.
29.1 million people in the United States have diabetes.
In adults 20 and older, more than one in every 10 people suffers from diabetes, and in seniors (65 and older), that figure rises to more than one in four.

Mental Illness

Every year, about 42.5 million American adults (or 18.2 percent of the total adult population in the United States) suffers from some mental illness.

Dementia

Of the 5.3 million Americans with Alzheimer’s, an estimated 5.1 million people are age 65 and older, and approximately 200,000 individuals are under age 65 (younger-onset Alzheimer’s).
In 2015, Alzheimer’s and other dementias will cost the nation $226 Billion. By 2050, these costs could rise as high as $1.1 Trillion.

Our current chief solution to the crisis is pill pushing:

Global pharmaceutical spending passed the trillion dollar threshold in 2014. By 2018 spending is expected to increase by another 30 percent.
The American share in the total drug spending worldwide is about one third.
Pharmaceutical spending per capita, 2013 versus 2018
