High blood pressure
But to name a few of the hundreds of ailments afflicting human beings which require medical treatment and medications to live.
Apparently you don't read the internet, obviously .
Easy research... check the NIH... the CDC... Mayo Clinic.... The Cleveland Clinic... The Barrow Clinic... your doctor...
If you become afflicted with such a disease, you cannot fix it by walking, eating right, exercising or even prayer. These activities can make your body more healthy, but none CAN FIX IT or repair damage.

Ok didnt want to go there. But people do get old ya know. High blood pressure & COPD.
I need a car & truck because I dont live in the city and Iam self employed for 30 years now.
I have a mortgage because it was cheaper than a four bedroom apartment (house) to rent so I could raise my kids. True mortgages do last longer than 18 years, but real estate used to be the best investment you could make before the banksters screwed us all just a few years back. Oh yeah less than a thousand bucks a month including school and local taxes that have surged in the past couple of years.
Ive never been one to visit the doctor unless I thought I might die so antibiotics ...hardly ever vacinations only the one that were forced on me like in childhood and the army. Never needed more excercise because I worked hard.
Not sure what you meen by wanting NOW. How about, Ive paid in since I was a working kid in 1970's and now I could use some back.
You sound kinda young how old are you? Do you have a family to raise in you $500 apartment with no car ?
Have you seen what happened to people who had investments since 2001?
Or did you mean I should invest in CD's at 1% intrest?

Americans are broke and living on the streets, simply because: THEY WERE FOOLISH WITH THEIR EARNINGS. Stop BLAMING everyone and stop looking for handouts. The "American people" have NO ONE to blame....but themselves.
Maybe, if they had INVESTED their earnings, in a home BUSINESS, for example....stopped piling up credit, like dirty laundry....and stopped trying to live the high life, with the latest gizmos and gadgets or SUV; they wouldn't be in the situation they're in? The only thing i feel SORRY about....is they were STUPID enough to get SCAMMED.
Really, who's to blame? Them or Y.O.U.???? Does the government have the RESPONSIBILITY to wipe your but, and burp you? GROW UP, ALREADY!!!!!!
Finishing my sentence? You finished it alright...along with any and all credibility.
How in the world are you traveling to the US and DO NOT bring with you the etiquette of AT LEAST knowing BASIC ENGLISH?
You need to stop traveling and WORK ON YOUR ENGLISH....seriously!
