Big Food vs. Big Insurance

Share This:

When it comes to politics, I’m about as non-political as they come. While I try to keep tabs on the important topics, and like to think of myself as having a subjective viewpoint, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m far from an expert and really only get my news from the following sources:

1. The back of a cereal box.

2. Talk radio to and from work everyday: personal favs include Michael Graham and Michele McPhee of WTKK, 96.6 here in Boston.

3. The occasional episode of The Daily Show.

4. And whatever it is that’s coming out of French newswoman, Melissa Theuriau’s mouth.

Jesus, she looks intelligent. You gotta give the French credit. If it were at all comparable to mid-90’s tv shows that kicked ass and took names, not to mention included one of the most underrated badonkadonks in U.S history (Jenna von Oy, aka, Six)- the French would be the Blossom of getting hot chicks to read news.

Moving on, I’ve generally made it a personal rule not to talk politics with people given that it usually does nothing but result in heated debates and/or knife fights. However, given the recent uproar about universal health care, and rightfully so I might add, I wanted to share a really great article written by Michael Pollan that appeared in the NY Times last week titled Big Food vs. Big Insurance.

With three quarters of health care spending going towards treatment of preventable chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity- all of which, not coincidentally, can be correlated to the typical Western diet- it’s not unreasonable to surmise that the most powerful “fix” to this whole issue could simply be what we put on our plates.

Yet another reason why Michael Pollan deserves the Pulitzer Prize for being Michael Pollan.

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.

    Coach Outlet  timepieces can be the very best in style given that they concentrate on couple  of different  tastes. That which you may prefer when it comes to timepieces  you're certain to locate what  you're looking for by purchasing a wristwatch  through coach.Searching through websites causes it  to be simpler to get  a coach handbag in the coach Bags last second for much under  retail.Women's  winters are often marked blue eyes, brown eyes, dark grey  wheels, it appears to brown an  excessive amount of hair, truly its light brown  and appears nearly the same as her hair whitened  in the finish from the term.
