Older Americans are disproportionately affected by chronic diseases and conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes and heart disease, as well as by disabilities that result from injuries such as falls. But we want to bring you attention to Choice, and the choices that we make throughout our life, will determine our future health, bad or good; today 10.3 million people – have diabetes, seven of every 10 Americans who die each year, or more than 1.7 million people, die of a chronic disease. Prescription drugs are now killing far more people than illegal drugs, and while most major causes of preventable deaths are declining, those from prescription drug use are increasing. What could be labeled Pharmageddon is here, which means legal drugs produce more ill-health than health, and when medical progress does more harm than good; the death toll is highest among people in their 40s, but all ages, from teenagers to the elderly, and all walks of life are being affected. Prescription drugs are now the preferred "high" for many, especially teens, as they are typically used legally, which eliminates the stigma of being a "junkie."
