Healthcare Problem

The No. 2 Instrument of Death

It’s probably not what you think.

What do you think causes more deaths in the United States each year?  Car crashes, drug overdose, alcoholism or firearm accidents? All of the those combined don’t total a third of this insidious instrument  of death: food.

We are literally eating our way into the grave. Obesity (caused by bad diet and lack of exercise) kills some 400,000 people in this country every year, according to the Centers of Disease Control. Only smoking-related diseases account for more deaths, with a total of 435,000 annually.

We do have a healthcare problem, and most of it is self-inflicted. We aren’t taking proper care of our own health. We need a new healthcare policy, and I don’t mean one enacted by Washington… but one enacted by you. You are the only one responsible for what you put into your mouth and how often you move your body.

At least you know I have your back with exercise and nutrition.  The key to success is consistent habits everyday!
