WANT TO BE AVERAGE???

The Average American…


  • Watches 4 hours of TV per day (that’s 36.5 full-time work weeks) and sees 30,000 television commercials per year!
  • Body contains residues of at least 13 different pesticides and weed killers.
  • Gains 7-10 pounds over the holidays!
  • Consumes 2600 Calories per day including 24 teaspoons of sugars
Eats in a year…
  • 30 pounds of cheese
  • 15 pounds of full fat ice cream
  • 7 pounds of low fat ice cream
  • 135 pounds of white & whole wheat breads, cereals, pancakes, cakes & cookies
  • 19 pounds of rice
  • 11 pounds of pasta
  • 28 pounds of corn flower, starch & grits
  • 78 pounds of added fats & oils due to food processing!
  • 35 pounds of cooking oils
  • 35 pounds of butter & margarine
  • 152 pounds of ADDED SUGAR!
  • 111 pounds of red meat
  • 83 pounds of poultry & seafood
  • 276 pounds of fruits & vegetables - up only 10% over 1970!
  • 22 gallons of whole & 2% milk 
  • 55 gallons of soda! (That’s 587 cans)!!!
  • 27 gallons of coffee
  • 28 gallons of beer
  • 9 gallons of fruit juice
  • 60 hot dogs
  • 16 pounds of chocolate
  • Dies of heart disease, cancer, or the medical system (#1, 2, & 3 killers)!
  • Is overweight or obese (60% of the population)!
  • Takes 6 medications per day by the time they reach 65!
  • Male dies at 72.5 years old, females at 78.9. (Compared to 75.2 and 81.2 in Canada, and 77.6 and 88.4 in Japan) – hint they take fewer drugs than we do!


The point of this compilation of facts is to teach you that if you want to live a life like everyone else, and die like everyone else, just do what they do.  Medical research and the Bible both agree that we should live to have 80-120 healthy years!  The Average American plan is a recipe for an early demise.  Look at your life compared to the average.  Maybe it is time to make a few changes.  Eat right (try an organic vegetable once in a while), stop watching TV, get adjusted, and think about how God gave the body an ability to heal itself (if we don’t destroy it first) before reaching for a drug.
