• Reason #6: Because life expectancy is falling in many places, and that’s ridiculous

    Despite our growing medical knowledge, despite ever more sophisticated drugs and medical devices, despite a nationwide drop in mortality from lung cancer, despite a drop in the murder rate and deaths from traffic accidents and despite spending more money per capita on health care than any other nation on earth, in many places in the U.S. life expectancy is actually lower than it was 20 years ago.

    In more than 20% of U.S. counties, life expectancy for women has fallen.  And in many other counties, life expectancy is just barely holding steady.

    That can’t be right, can it?

    It is.  And the reason is not obscure: obesity, and the chronic diseases and mortality associated with it.

    This is a lifestyle catastrophe, one we have brought on ourselves and one that is swamping all the medical and technological interventions and innovations that we spend so much money on.

    By joining with other cyclists,  you are supporting an organized, unified and powerful voice for bicycling. We have shown how powerful – how irresistible, in fact – we are when we are unified, organized and focused.  If you want more of that  –  and want physical activity to be again be a part of everyday life for Delawareans so that we can stop, and reverse, our obesity epidemic – please help by becoming a member of Bike Delaware, today.

      Being extremely obese means you are especially likely to have health problems related to your weight. The good news is that even modest weight loss can improve or prevent the health problems associated with obesity. You can usually lose weight through dietary changes, increased physical activity and behavior changes. In some cases, prescription medications or weight-loss surgery may be options. *;**
