America falling behind


Great post about the newest statistics about our longevity as a nation and how it's falling behind other nations. We're also falling behind in other ways such as height and infant mortality.

Universal health care, anyone? More time off so we have energy to be more active? Smaller portions of food served or sold pre-packaged? Less sodium and corn syrup in our processed foods and more whole grains? Raise minimum wage so poor people can actually buy good food and enough of it?

We can turn this around if we have the will and demand that our legislators do something about it, as well as finding the time to exercise and cook better foods for ourselves.
