We’re Being Stampeded Into An Unnecessary Panic

Robert W Felix

While COVID-19 deaths appear* to be skyrocketing in the United States, they trail far behind the two leading killers; cancer and heart disease.

* I say Covid-19 deaths appear to be skyrocketing, because I think a great number of those deaths are being mis-reported. I predict that both heart-related deaths and cancer-related deaths – especially lung-cancer-related deaths – will miraculously decline markedly as so-called Covid-related deaths increase.

Although innumerable sensational headlines would make it appear that Covid-19 is the greatest risk to America’s health, the number of reported Covid-19 deaths remain far below the number one and number two leading causes of death throughout the country.

As of today, 23 January 2021, the United States has reported 424,634 deaths from Covid-19. Though a reprehensible number, it remains far below the reported number of deaths from either cancer or heart disease.

Cancer

According to the CDC, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. In 2018, there were 599,274 cancer deaths; 283,721 females and 315,553 males.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death, accounting for 24% of all cancer deaths.

This compares to the reported 424,634 deaths from Covid-19

Cancer was ranked as the number-two leading cause of death for 20.7% of females in the United States in 2017. This included all races and origins.

Men fared even worse, with cancer ranking as the number-two leading cause of death for 22.5% of males in the United States in 2017. This again included all races and origins.

Heart disease

Heart disease ranked even higher. Heart disease ranked as the number one female killer in 2017 in the U.S., coming in at 21.8 percent.

Men again lead the pack, with heart disease at 24.2% being the leading cause of death for males in 2017 in the United States.

Those numbers were for the United States.

Now let’s look at the world

In 2005, 7.6 million people died of cancer and based on projection, cancer deaths will continue to rise with an estimated 11.4 million dying in 2030.

Compare that to the 2.1 million Covid-19 deaths worldwide so far, and you may come to the same conclusion that I have; that we have far greater things to worry about than Covid-19.

I think we’re being stampeded into an unnecessary panic.
