People need to start taking responsibility for their health. So much obesity and diabetes, and all they need to do is cut way back on their carbohydrate consumption and eat a lot more vegetables, seeds and nuts. Also eat modest amounts of fresh fruit and meat.

Yes. Get off their butts and exercise and quit eating so much. That would solve 50% or more of our health costs.

Perhaps they would if they had to pay for their medical care. Can’t force um to be healthy. But you can make it rather costly for them if they are 500 lbs because they can’t put the twinkies away.

er...

Doughnuts away.

Let insurance companies price insurance on weight and other risk factors and people will get back in to shape.

We will turn in to the humans in the movie Wall-e at this rate.
