FDA Commissioner Sounds the Alarm On ‘Catastrophic’ Rise in Death Rate Since 2019


ER Productions Limited / DigitalVision

Americans are dying at an alarmingly high rate since 2019 — but health experts are “baffled” at the cause for the decline in American life expectancy.

Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Robert Califf raised the alarm in a post on Twitter/X.

“We are facing extraordinary headwinds in our public health with a major decline in life expectancy. The major decline in the U.S. is not just a trend. I’d describe it as catastrophic,” he wrote.

Some experts say the decline is caused in part by smoking, poor diets, chronic diseases, and healthcare inequality. But those conditions existed long before the COVID pandemic.

Insurance companies provided a chilling statistic: 158,000 more Americans died in the first nine months of 2023 than in the same period in 2019.

The death toll surpasses the combined losses from every war since Vietnam. The statistic includes elderly, children and babies.

The shocking deaths of more than 30 journalists who “died suddenly” over the last few years include NYC reporter Katherine Creag, sports journalist Grant Wahl and CBS-New York meteorologist Elise Finch.

American journalists are also suffering from underlying mental health conditions, such as clinical depression and anxiety. Erie News Now anchor Emily Matson and other reporters have taken their own lives since 2019.

Doctors are seeing a steep rise in cancer rates, particularly among adults ages 20-49 — a demographic that is traditionally among the healthiest in society.

Doctors are also reporting a rise in health conditions such as heart and lung disease among young people age 18 and under.

Concerned Americans are calling on Congress to launch an investigation to determine the cause of the decline in life expectancy.
