The insurance problem isnât the real problem. It is a symptom of our unhealthy eating and lifestyle. Attempting to solve this or at least lessen the effects should be an issue where the Democrats and Republicans could work together. This wouldnât be a quick fix but a long term solution. For older Americans changing lifestyle and dietary habits would be hard, but changing attitudes with children will be much easier. They are captive for 9 to 10 months out of the year, within a generation we could have a healthier group of young people coming out of school with the habits and education to have a better chance of keeping the healthy lifestyles. The major killers in our society are heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and others all are significantly less in people who eat healthy, low fat, smaller portions and more active people. Cutting down on these diseases would totally change the argument on health care. We have seen success in changing habits with tobacco and drinking and driving and changing our eating habits is something achievable if our politicians can get behind this. We have also seen how the large food and fast food corporations have changed our eating habits. It can work and I believe is the best and most logical solutionâ¦lower health care cost and a healthier population. A true win win situation. I put this in economics because it would change the economic conditions of Americans and American companies and our government for the better.
