MY INTERPRETATION OF CNN’S SANJAY GUPTA’S ONE NATION UNDER STRESS. PART 2 OF 2

MY INTERPRETATION OF CNN’S SANJAY GUPTA’S ONE NATION UNDER STRESS. PART 2 OF 2

I think this is the better half.  Mind you CNN went political with this, I’m just reporting it.  But you can shoot me anyway.

Researchers attribute Hispanics living longer than whites or blacks to this Roseto affect, of having strong family bonds.  They call it the Hispanic paradox, they eat the things we’re told not to and yet they are healthier.  Keep in mind, as the Italians in Roseto became more Americanized, their health advantages disappeared.

CNN keeps using baboon populations as a model to predict humanities future.  There are cave drawings discovered while digging up the Paris subway system of Cave Men walking on each other’s backs.  I’m positive that Cave Men are higher on the evolutionary tree than baboons.  Since no one asked why the cave men were doing that, I’ll answer the unasked question.  Even cave men knew that you could not repair the faulty spinal reflexes by yourself.  You needed help.  You need a chiropractor and CNN has still as I predicted, not mentioned the word, not even a word that sounds almost like it.

Sanjay seems to be saying that everyone on earth needs to help everyone based upon the Italians in Roseto.  But they had that strong bond for each other because they were a small community, not a global initiative.   Yes I am saying that the level of stress and heart attacks has gone up with the advent of the U.N. and globalization.  It’s not the only cause, but according to what I just watched, it would make sense to realize that our primitive stress reflexes are going to get triggered when invaders take our resources, just like the baboons.  More stressful is having bureaucrats that are far removed from us, making decisions that will affect how we live.  Hence Brexit.

You can call it social Darwinism, that nature does not want us around once our utility is used up.  We are hard wired to protect ourselves and what is ours.  The world we now live in, one without borders, traditional families, and just plain over population is extremely stressful and the stress hormone cortisol destroys the part of our brain for empathy.  So while we are being forced to take care of the entire world that wants to sneak in here, that stress is causing our brains to have less empathy for their plight.  I didn’t think I would make this about politics when I started, but the authors of the film did.  While globalization is being rammed down our throats, we’re discovering from scientists much smarter than us, that this can be stressful, which is harmful.  But if you complain about your incredibly rising death rate, you will be ostracized as a nationalist, which can also be very stressful.  Hillary said it takes a village and what makes up a village is a family.  Today, the government is that village and family, and their policies help destroy the family.  Then they do a study to find out what is going on and pretend to be completely dumbfounded that their policies have created most of the problems they are scratching their heads about.

It took 3 days before I could return, but Sanjay is still upset with the social Darwinism theory that seems to be his purpose for investigating the opioid crisis that is killing so many.  His solution is that we all must care about each other.  The idea that sending someone to a chiropractor so that they do not become addicted to opioids has not reached his consciousness yet at 59 minutes into this 70 minute show.  Right now they are showing how Apes share food and that we are not as good as the apes and that we have to learn to not be aggressive and more caring.  Well, the main topic of the show was stress and being more caring for the people we deal with would make things less stressful.

However, I’m going to insist that if anyone of us had to care for the entire planet, or at least a few thousand people that were in our living room, living would be quite stressful and a normal healthy person would say, hey get out of my house.  Well maybe not if they were stoned out on opioids?  Now he is showing students upset about guns.  Guns stress them out.  I wonder if watching home invaders kill your family as you watch helplessly because you don’t have a gun could cause stress?  A little more sarcasm is well deserved here since he is making this into an incredible propaganda piece instead of a scientific inquiry about stress.

Ironically he is showing the stress of teenagers to be worse than any time in history as they are all sitting around eating french fries and drinking coke, two poisonous chemicals that will attack the endocrine system and create real stress.  I did like what one teenage girl said about harassment on social media and how you can make someone feel really bad about themselves without ever having to come face to face with them.  Social Media is 50-50 on bringing us all together.  It brings the same minded people together though.  Sanjay is saying that social media puts a constant level of stress on young people.  My wife is a psychologist.  She would say deal with it.  I’ve felt my blood pressure rise often when I read something from a stranger that was attacking me.  I’ve learn to have fun with it now.  So this number one stress for young people that Sanjay is pointing out can be easily eliminated without eliminating the amendment that allows us to keep the other 9 vital rights that our wise founders gave to all of us.

Wow, there is a clip of Sanjay talking about how the life expectancy for Americans has dropped for 3 years in a row.  He is on CNN being interviewed by a woman.  Behind Sanjay for some unexplained reason is a bottom half of a spine rotating in circles.  I wonder if he is going to mention the benefits of chiropractic now?  Just kidding, of course he is not.  He went back to his mentor, a famous pathologist that is now blaming this on guns.  Now he is talking about social justice in medicine.  I imagine he is thinking that people are stressed out because they don’t have access to a health care system that is the third leading cause of death in America?  Well he did mention bad food as part of the problem, along with opioids, and gun laws.  Finally Sanjay said something I totally agree with, that we should stop doing the things that create disease as he put a lock on his locker at the hospital.  He has been preaching that we must love each other, take care of them, not care about material things, yet he doesn’t trust his fellow doctors to not steal his stuff.
