Oprah Winfrey will be dead within 2 years according to medical experts. Dr. David Demko and Dr. Patrick Wanis both claim that if Oprah doesn’t drastically change her ways she is headed for an early death. At 280 pounds Oprah is battling severe obesity and along with her overactive thyroid, high blood pressure and the stress of dealing with her failing OWN Network, the Queen of Talk is a walking time bomb.
Oprah has been dealing with these problems for decades. Dr. Demko is a Florida Atlantic University professor and creator of the ‘Death Calculator’ which predicts lifespan. He predicts Oprah is almost certainly going to die by age 60… and that gives the 58 year-old just 2 more years.
According to The Examiner, print edition April 9th, Dr. Demko warns: “Oprah can expect to live only to age 60 based on her current genetic and lifestyle risk factors,” says Dr. Demko.
Dr. Wanis adds: “Unless Oprah makes wholesale lifestyle changes in her diet and stress management. The prediction may come true – she may only have two years left.”
Oprah’s lifelong struggle with obesity poses the biggest health threat, sat experts, because it increases her risk of cardio-vascular disease, diabetes, and kidney problems, all of which could shorten her lifespan.
Dr. Gabe Mirkin of Orlando, Florida, author of the Heart Health Miracle, agrees with the gloomy outlook for Oprah:
“Obesity significantly increases Oprah’s risk for heart attack and stroke. When you have so many fat cells. They emit cytokines which damage the arterial walls by creating ulcers. Then your body produces cholesterol which deposits plaques on the ulcers. The stress and anxiety of her job can also cause cardiovascular problems.”
Dr Wanis concludes: “It’s apparent Oprah has not made the lifestyle modifications that would have changed her future. If anything, she appears to have gone from bad to worse.”
We wish Oprah the best of luck in improving her health and hope she lives a long and happy life. Do you think Oprah can turn her health prognosis around before it is too late? Let us know in the comments below.
