In Aging Backwards, author Miranda Esmonde-White describes how aging is more of a lifestyle choice than a length of time growing old. Esmonde-White’s main goal in writing this book is to expand knowledge to individuals that the reason why we age is because of neglecting certain areas on our bodies. Every muscle in our body is the key to living a long life. According to Esmonde-White (2014), “An organelle called mitochondria, is the powerhouses of cells. If the mitochondria keeps running; our muscles, bones, hearts, lungs, and skin can enjoy energy of youth, right up until our final days” (p. 4).
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimated that 732,000 American children were saved from death and 322 million cases of childhood illnesses were prevented between 1994 and 2014 due to vaccination.” With these given statistics, Parents should be more than willing to vaccinate with all the lives saved in the years past. One main factor that makes the vaccines safe is the ingredients used. While used in large quantities, thimerosal, formaldehyde, and aluminum can be dangerous but scientist have lowered the dosage to a healthy form.

The essay also shows that the percent of diagnoses in sleep orders by 266% and prescription medications prescribed to patients also increased by 293%. All these statics do a great job of support the claim that Americans rely on caffeine and alarm clocks rather than cat naps but the question still remains. What solutions does the author give to help the people included in these
I personally have gotten strep throat every season since I was 10 that’s six years I’ve had it in a row. It’s really easy to go to the doctor and then they give me antibiotics and in two days I can go back to school and I feel better. In the years before chemists found the sulfa drugs people would die from things like strep throat and pneumonia.
