Prevention seems to fall last on the list when it comes to any disease.
Drugs: treat symptoms, not the disease. Drugs cause disease and more symptoms.
Foods, Air, Depression, side effects of big pharma growing our food and pumping people with mind altering drugs is giving people cancer, suicide, and diseases at the expense of your life and life savings.
Obesity is a good example of a preventable disease, and it's also highly visual, and it's generally accepted as a precursor for may preventable diseases. Obesity is unfairly attacked because of it being so visual. An obese person is ridiculed for eating a big mac, while a skinny person could be damaging their cholesterol level at the same rate but is most likely less noticed by gawkers.
Obesity is also a side effect of something larger inside of someone that is wrong whether it is physical or mental. People are not taught to deal with their molestations from childhood. Even in therapy you are told to take drugs after you tell the therapist about your past and get a little antsy while you do so. People are not taught to cope with abuse. They are told to mask the symptom, pop a pill, or in some cases of obesity; scarf down that food in an attempt to cope with an emotion. Brain chemistry is also effected by foods we eat. Like a person addicted to coffee, your body can become addicted to fried foods.
I don't have an answer; just making an observation. Have a good day everyone and be mindful of your temple, the body. If anyone else has an observation about flaws in society and the way we view health, feel free to share
