The Diseases of Aging Are Declining - Not Sure Why, But We'll Take It
I often lift up improvements in the world which are the result of deliberate efforts at betterment.
But there are also things that are improving for unclear reasons. Several of the diseases of aging - colon cancer, broken hips, dementia - are all down. Researchers don't really know why.
They conclude that it is probably the result of everything - deliberate effort, unintended consequences, cause X.
I will believe that we should keep doing the right thing, and we will probably be helped by Providence, too.
