AMERICA LITERALLY IS A DEAD LOSS

A NATION OF THE LATTER DAY SAINTS ~ A record number of homeless people, 918 last year alone, are dying across Los Angeles County. The victims of American wars ~ criminally misplaced government investment, breathe their last on bus and sidewalk benches, hillsides, railroad tracks and sidewalks.
Deaths have jumped 76% in the past five years, outpacing the growth of the homeless population, according to a Kaiser Health News analysis of the coroner’s data.
Health officials and experts can only speculate as to why the roll call of disgrace is called out by the Grim Reaper. Perhaps it is politically incorrect or dangerous to point out that the US regime pumps money into the arms complex rather than doing as other countries do, investing in infrastructure and social needs.
The surge also reflects growth in the number of people who are chronically homeless and those who don’t typically use shelters, which mean more people are living longer on the streets with serious physical and behavioural health issues, they say.
“It is a combination of people who are living for a long time in unhealthy situations and who have multiple health problems,” said Michael Cousineau, a professor at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. “There are more complications, and one of those complications is a high mortality rate. It’s just a tragedy.”
Nearly 53,000 people were homeless in L.A. County last year, according to a point-in-time count of homeless residents, an increase of about 39% since 2014. The majority were not living in shelters. The homeless population has also grown nationwide, but disturbingly there is no national census of homeless deaths.
The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner considers someone homeless if that person doesn’t have an established residence, or if the body was found in an encampment, shelter or other location that suggests homelessness.
Based on that criterion, the coroner reported 3,612 deaths of homeless people in L.A. County from 2014 to 2018.

One-third died in hospitals and even more died outside, in places such as sidewalks, alleyways, parking lots, riverbeds and on freeway on-ramps. Male deaths outnumbered female deaths, but the percentage of homeless women who died increased faster than that of men.
“We need to take action now,” said Rev. Andy Bales, CEO of the Union Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter on L.A.’s skid row. “Otherwise next year it’s going to be more than 1,000.”
“This shouldn’t be happening,” especially when many deaths could have been prevented with better access to health care and housing, said David Snow, a sociology professor at the University of California-Irvine. “If you are on the streets, you are not getting the attention you need.”
Homeless residents in Los Angeles also died from the same ailments as the general population, heart disease, cancer, lung disease, diabetes and infections. But they did so at a much younger age, said Dr Paul Gregerson, who treats homeless residents as chief medical officer for JWCH Institute clinics in the Los Angeles area.
A stressful lifestyle, lack of healthy food and exposure to the weather contribute to an early death, he said. “If you are homeless, your body ages faster from living outside,” Gregerson said.
In Los Angeles County, the average age of death for homeless people was 48 for women and 51 for men. Over the five-year period in L.A. County, there also was a sharp increase in deaths of younger adults who were homeless. For instance, the deaths of adults under 45 more than doubled.
