New York -- Despite 9/11, the biggest threat to American lives is not terrorism, declares Elixxir, the Immortalist philosopher and strategist. "As shocking and appalling as 9/11 was, terrorism is not even in the top 10 causes of death in America," says Elixxir, who is the author of "The ImmorTalist Manifesto." "Rather, heart disease is the biggest threat."
Last year, heart disease killed well over 725,000 Americans, which is about 242 times the 3,000 killed on 9/11. And 9/11 is a one-time tragedy so far. 725,000 Americans die of heart disease every year without fail.
"In light of the fact that over 700,000 Americans die of heart disease each year without fail, The ImmorTalist Party demands that a War on Heart Disease be declared immediately," Elixxir says.
He explains "All of these heart disease deaths are preventable, premature or unnecessary. And therefore totally outrageous and unacceptable."
"Since heart disease has an extremely high correlation to biological aging, it should be seen as a symptom of The Aging Syndrome," Elixxir argues. "Therefore we need a new paradigm to conquer heart disease. In addition to heart disease research, we should also pursue anti-aging research as a way to prevent or even cure heart disease."
"Millions of Americans suffer from heart disease and its debilities. Many of whom continue to work and care for their families and society," declares Elixxir. "We demand that they be recognized as no less heroic than victims of terrorism.
