Beijing held a military parade and public show to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on Oct. 1, 2019. The three Chinese presidents, Xi Jinping, Jiang Zemin, and Hu Jintao, rarely appear in the same photograph. However, Mr. Jiang Zemin, who is 93 years old and visibly revealing his age, was able to stay 2 hours and 40 minutes among them.
Today’s World Magazine reported that 93-year-old Jiang Zemin and 102-year-old Tong Pingxi appeared.
According to data issued by the National Health Commission, the average life expectancy in China is now 77 years. In comparison, Chinese Communist Party elites and military leaders live much longer. Most of them live to be 90 years old or more, with many of them being over a century old.
For example, former Chinese Premier Li Peng is 91, Li Rui, the former secretary of Mao Zedong, is 102 years old. Tong Ping’s wife, Chen Shunyao, former deputy secretary of Tsinghua University in Beijing, passed away this year aged 102. Many leaders will live to be one hundred years old, such as the former Party Secretary. Party Central Committee Secretary Dang Le Tun (100 years old), former Vice Chairman of the Central Committee Wang Tong Hóng (100 years old), former State Councilor Zhang Jin Fu (101 years old) and other leaders. Those over 90 years old are countless.
So, what gives the CCP leaders the ability to live such lengthy lives? There are THREE reasons why CCP leaders live longer than the average individual.
First, a special daily menu
According to the People’s Daily, China’s leaders may eat 25 types of food every day, not 25 dishes, and the “concept of eating less and offering more meals” is stressed. Only enough food is “mixed” to ensure nutritional balance.
China has a system of specific facilities that provide food to Zhongnanhai, according to Apple Daily in May 2018. For example, China’s State Council maintains a “Special Food Supply Center for Central State Agencies,” which provides high-quality organic food to senior officials from ministries and committees.
Former director of the Beijing hospital’s nutrition department, Zeng Xuyuan, who is at the vanguard of the CCP’s nutrition and health care field, and Li Ruifen, former director of the military general hospital’s nutrition department in the Beijing area, take care of the leaders’ nutritional priorities, according to Tang Xuyuan. That includes eating 25 different types of foods each day.
The notion of “eating less, more meals” is emphasized while preparing meals for leaders. Nutrition will be balanced only when the foods are “complex. … A little amount of each variety is enough,” said Ly Thuy Fen, who consumes between 25 and 30 different foods per day.
Tang Xuyuan stated that in addition to eating a complete seven-minute lunch, the leader will also have snacks between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., according to the idea of “eat less and eat more.” For example, eat a bowl of white mushroom soup with lotus seeds or wheat bran in the morning and half a cup of yogurt with seeds in the afternoon.
A leader’s diet primarily uses steaming, boiling, braising, combining, and boiling to prevent nutrient loss and ensure a low-fat diet. Fried foods are not entirely prohibited. A low-salt, low-fat, and high-fiber diet should be followed regardless of the cooking method.
Furthermore, leaders are undoubtedly invited to dinner parties and will consume alcoholic beverages. Leaders are said to utilize raw grains, bitter melon seeds, lean meat, and other foods as a “base” before drinking alcohol to minimize stomach lining damage. The leader’s diet is supposed to include a lot of raw grains. Deng Xiaoping lived to reach 93 years old, despite smoking and drinking. Deng ate raw grains at least twice a week, according to Deng’s security secretary Zhang Baozhong, including cornmeal, buckwheat noodles, sorghum, millet, and other grains.
Second, organ transplantation Increases life expectancy
The “Health Project for 981 Leaders” of Beijing 301 Hospital was heavily promoted on WeChat in 2019. This initiative has been ongoing since 2005, according to the ad’s content.
The average Chinese life expectancy in 2019 is around 77 years old, according to official Chinese figures. However, it was found that the purpose of this “health project” is to extend the lives of China’s leaders to 150 years. To put it another way, they’ll aim to help China’s leaders live nearly twice as long as the typical citizen.
Furthermore, the propaganda campaign claims that Chinese leaders have a substantially longer life expectancy than leaders from other countries.
Beijing 301 Hospital is a significant Chinese healthcare facility that has been in charge of China’s senior leaders’ health for many years.
Steven W. Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute and a China expert, stated in 2019 that in the 1960s, high-ranking Chinese officials were injected with the blood of young people to lengthen life to significant effect. They began using organ transplants in the 1980s. Organ transplantation was first used in China to “regenerate organs” for its leaders to extend their lives.
China was found guilty of crimes against humanity by an Independent People’s Court (China Tribunal) in the United Kingdom in June 2019. The court accused China of conducting large-scale live organ harvesting for many years, with healthy organs from Falun Gong practitioners being one of the primary sources.
As far as we know, these Falun Gong practitioners improve their health by performing five sets of exercises and improving their quality of mind following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. As a result, their internal organs are in excellent shape and highly desirable for transplantation.
Third, unique advantages and benefits
Former Vice Minister of Health En Daikui said in 2009 at the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) Medical Industry Forum that “medical and health expenses” amount to hundreds of billions of dollars.
At the forum, En Daikui stated that party and government cadres account for 80% of China’s yearly medical expenditures. In 2006, total national health expenditures were at $108.6 billion, accounting for 5.6 percent of GDP, with government investment accounting for around $18.5 billion, or 17% of total health spending. However, 80% of this, or $14.7 billion, has been allotted to 8.5 million party and government cadres, leaving only 20%, or $3.7 billion, for the remaining 1.3 billion people.
Four hundred thousand cadres are working in clinics, inns, and resorts for cadres across the country, costing up to $7.8 billion every year.
Senior officials with the rank of Deputy Minister or higher can spend years in specialist hospitals or high-end clinics, undergoing rigorous medical care and using the world’s most modern and expensive drugs. The cost of “several thousand yuan” per day is nothing to them.
The cost of a “retired provincial cadre” in the hospital was reported to be $466 thousand each time in 2013, according to the People’s Daily website, China’s official media.
A retired general will have a mansion with five to seven secretaries, security guards, drivers, nannies, cooks, etc. Every summer, these retired generals will go to Jigong mountain, Henan province, to escape the heat for a month. Everyone has a villa in the mountains—a legacy of Chiang Kai-shek and other high-ranking officials. A “military nurses” team dedicated to serving generals follows them up the mountain to measure blood pressure daily and conduct “blood tests, urine tests” weekly. In winter, the generals would go to Hainan or elsewhere to recuperate for a month. An entire division-level military unit exists for the health, safety, and food of the “old revolutionaries.” We do not know how the party and state leaders at the national and deputy national levels will enjoy their lives after retirement, but it is predictable: they have a place to live, called a “citadel.” There will also be a large group accompanying them, dedicated to their health, safety, and daily lives.
The price to pay is the lives, blood, and tears of countless people. Excessive waste of people’s taxes, transfusion of young people’s blood, and the use of healthy people’s organs to prolong life. More than foreign leaders of the Chinese leadership, China has discovered the secret to “longevity.”
