Now I am going to rant
In the great hullabaloo/debate/yelling contest about health care reform over the past few months, I’ve become completely overwhelmed. The arguments all start running together, and it’s difficult to take in any more ideas or arguments. Probably many of you have already stop reading after seeing the words “health care reform.” But i was impressed with some points on the health care system that author Michael Pollan made on NPR over the weekend. He was far less concerned with the specifics for change to the system as he was for changes to the American diet, and the corresponding catastrophic effect it has on our health and its maintenance. For Pollan, the high-sugar, high-fat American is a big problem.
The American way of eating has become the elephant in the room in the debate over health care.
If there is no change to the way Americans eat, millions will continue to develop type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and many types of cancer.
