Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Article Urging US Individuals to Admire China for its Health, Despite its Political Turmoil

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, explains that in the midst of the unrest and oppression in China, the country’s urban population is outliving the US population’s life expectancy.

NEW YORK, NY – May 5, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published an article on her website that tells statistics that will encourage admiration instead of pity for the people of China’s Shanghai. The article, titled “Let’s Learn From China Instead of Competing With Them” comments on a NY Times article that relays statistics on the Asian country’s healthier lifestyle, and what it means for the unhealthy eating habits of the United States citizens

Dr. Anderson writes, “Americans love speaking of the human rights abuses in China. In fact, this Asian country is actually winning against the United States in the race for long life. China is not just outperforming us in the area of studies; they are also outpacing our country’s citizens in the competition for life span and expectancy! We can criticize their political and personal rights abuses all we want. But perhaps it is the US that is abusing our population with the food we feed our citizens, which then is leading to our early demise. We need to start learning form the Chinese rather than competing with them!”

“I believe that our diet is a major contributor to this frightening statistical comparison. If our country didn’t allow the marketing and advertising of junk to our adults (and worse – our children), then we might not be in such dire straights. If our country promoted health, the incredibly powerful temptations to gorge on greasy pizza would not outweigh the desires to chomp into delicious and colorful vegetables,” says Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
