For Dying White Middle-Aged Americans, Voices from the Pre-East
Majid Ali, M.D.
White Middle-Aged White Americans Are Most Privileged Among Peers.
Why Are They Dying At Higher Rates Than Their Peers?
The rates of dying of white middle-aged white Americans, aged 45 to 54 years, rose by an average of two 0.5% every ears from 1999 to 2013 – 7% in all.
he rates of dying of non-white Middle-Aged White Americans, aged 45 to 54 years, fell by two percent every ears from 1999 to 2013 – 28% in all.
Three main causes of death accounting for increasing rates of dying among whote middle-aged Americans are suicide, drug overdose, and alcohol-caused liver Disease.
What Might Have African Grandmothers of the Pre-East told white middle-aged Americans?
My guess is that the African grandmothers would have said something like this:
- Be in your elements, not in your head.
- Head-fixation robs life. Being aoung your elements breathes life into your body.
- So, breathe human.
- Walk human, kneel human.
- Laugh human, cry human.
- Feat human, starve human.
- Live life, not just pontificate about it.
