About 610,000 Americans die from heart disease each year—that’s 1 in every 4 deaths, according to the CDC (Center for Disease Control). The top chronic diseases have a link to high sugar consumption.
An illness is chronic when it continues for a long time or constantly reappears. NBA Player Sean Rooks, rhythm and blues artist Otis Clay, TV sitcom fame Alan Thicke, Star Wars Carry Fisher, and many others died in 2016 from heart disease.
Heart disease is an umbrella term for any type of disorder that affects the heart. Heart disease means the same as cardiac disease but not cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease refers to disorders of the blood vessels and heart, while heart disease refers to just the heart, as stated by to Medical News Today’s (MNT) Heart Disease: Definition, Causes, Research.
In the U.S. the data showed:
An ideal situation in modern society is for it to change once a fact has been confirmed about harmful behaviors and to follow what produces better outcomes for life. But it can also be negated when millions of dollars and time are spent that promote the perpetuation of harmful behavior. Deadly and harmful, but usually unnoticed conditions until the harm is physiologically felt, is usually the result for many.
Results of this fact finding investigation are more than alarming. Government agencies are condemning sugar but the public isn’t responding. Sugar is killing us states Dr. Hyman, author of “The Blood sugar solution 10-day detox diet.”
A sugar-laden diet may raise your risk of dying of heart disease even if you aren’t overweight. So says a major study published in JAMA Internal Medicine., according to a report done by Harvard Health Publications (HHP), the media and publishing division of the Harvard Medical School of Harvard University.
Over the course of the 15-year study on added sugar and heart disease, participants who took in 25% or more of their daily calories as sugar were more than twice as likely to die from heart disease as those whose diets included less than 10% added sugar.
Overall, the odds of dying from heart disease rose in tandem with the percentage of sugar in the diet—and that was true regardless of a person’s age, sex, physical activity level, and body-mass index (a measure of weight).
A new study from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center reveals diets that are high in sugar are a major risk factor for certain types of cancers, especially breast cancer, according to a Fox News report.

Mr. Larry Pinson, Sr., a Maywood, Illinois native has authored a book called C.H.A.P.P.S. Mr. Pinson says, “C.H.A.P.P.S will put an end to poverty. It will stop unemployment. And it will put an end to the loss of service in the work area. (i.e. when an employee goes on vacation, sick leave, or injury comp, there will not be a loss in service.) C.H.A.P.P.S is an American pay system that is an equal opportunity to earn a living in America without taxpayers’ money with all the workers averaging $15 per hour, for unskilled labor guaranteed, and everything is guaranteed whether its full time or part time.”
Larry Pinson has been retired from the United States Post Office, since 2009. He started in 1995 and worked as a truck driver. He has a very interesting biography in his book. But his book is based on his experiences in the postal service and the military service.
Larry Pinson created the system first for the postal system and says it can be applied across many job classifications, for city and county employees, teachers, police officers, firemen, etc. He even includes military people coming home and jobs worldwide, pay systems of other government agencies and large institutions.
C.H.A.P.P.S stands for Clockable Hours Application Process and Pay System. It’s subtitle and aim, is Job Creation without Taxpayers Money. Pinson says it was his responsibility to write the book, show the book and the numbers in the book. “I’m dealing strictly with numbers in the book, stated Pinson.
In the introduction after briefly expounding on the issues with the U.S Postal System, Pinson talks about a three tour system. Tour 1 is 8 pm to 4 am, Tour 2 is 4 am to 12 noon, and Tour 3 is 12 noon to 8 pm. Tours is another term for shifts. Pinson uses usual terms in chapters that he explains, such as non-scheduled Days, Carry- Time and from the middle to the end of the book, he explains C.H.A.P.P.S version of usual terms such as overtime, Night differential, Annual leave, sick leave holidays, paid breaks and retirement.
When the book gets to the Chapter on Four-In-A-Box is where you have to really put your thinking cap on to keep up with Larry Pinson’s thought pattern. Four full time employees are needed per tour and all three tours (shifts) must be covered by four employees in his 4-in-a-box system. In that system 1 of the four employees is always off and not scheduled to work that day. In the 4-in-a-box system chapter, Pinson gives an example of how that works. This 4-in-a-box system is scheduled by bids and is awarded by seniority. Some bids are built in permanent bids. Some of the language is postal and postal workers would have a better understanding of terms like bidding on a schedule and flexies.
Another concept that Pinson says one must comprehend is the Two 7-day, One 6-day work Bid. He says it is needed to carry out the 4-in-a-box system. The bid is broken down by 4 employees working 160 hours. 7 + 7 + 6 totals 20 days. This multiplied by 4 employees equals 160 hours.
On page 13 of his book, Larry Pinson breaks down his five Clockable Hour Systems a Full Time Military, Part Time Military, Full Time Civilian Bargaining Unit, Part Time Civilian Bargaining Unit, and a Full Time Non-Bargaining Unit. It also includes two tables for graphic explanation of the system. The graphics for Full-Time military show a 5-day breakdown of pay accrued for week one and week two as examples, with benefits, salary, and stipend pay for the current year’s salary and next year’s salary. The graphics for Full-Time Civilian is a more simplified table.
Larry Pinson’s book, C.H.A.P.P.S. has only 37 pages, plus 11 pages including, title page, table of contents, and the introduction. At the end of the book he includes his biography which has an impressive military history. He has received 8 medals and two ribbons for his service.
Pinson was born in Newnan Georgia moved to Chicago at age six, attended six military schools, four elementary schools in Chicago, Herzl, Penn, mason and Sumner and graduated high school at Marshall in 1967. He also attended Mercer County Community College. His hobbies are basketball, baseball travel, and fine dining. He also likes to go out to the theater and see movies.
