We don’t need someone else telling us that diseases like diabetes are preventable. If we really want to make a change, we need a systematic shift. Let’s put efforts into prevention instead of treatment of symptoms. Let’s focus on overall health improvements in our nation by changing our food culture, making the FDA accountable for the things they allow into our food and drug systems. And let’s promote actual healthy foods (and drugs!), improve what our children eat at home and at school, subsidize healthy foods, ranchers and farmers who implement healthy business practices, and stop encouraging unhealthy foods and practices. Heck, just do ONE of these things and we will be on our way to controlling, if not eliminating some of these horrible diseases that are preventable and devastating our country.
