Evidence of Abundance #9: Curing Addiction and Disease

Below are two powerful graphs in "Health Abundance" I wanted to share this week.

First is the massive reduction in smoking from 45 percent in the 1960s to 25 percent today. The bad news is that smoking is still the #1 preventable cause of death in the United States. Cigarette smoking causes more than 480,000 deaths each year in the United States. This is about one in five deaths. Smoking causes more deaths each year than all of these combined: HIV, alcohol, car accidents and guns.

Second, is a look at the reduction of global malaria deaths, and the increase in funding allocated for research and development to cure malaria. Watch what happens all over the world when we devote funds to solve grand challenges:

As medical research continues and technology enables new breakthroughs, there will be a day when Malaria and most all major deadly diseases are eradicated on Earth.

I hope you enjoyed this week's Evidence of Abundance.

Best wishes,
Peter
