If you believe you need to take all the pills the pharmaceutical industry says you do then you are already on drugs...

None of the health care plans proposed by presidential candidates address the real problem. We won't stop being sick, until we stop making ourselves sick. Because there is a point where even the best health programs can't help you, they can't outlaw unhealthy food or alcohol or cigarettes, just pot sadly. Because you see the government isn't your nanny, they're your dealer and they subsidize illness in America. They have to, there's no money in helping people and there's no money in dead people. The money is in the middle, people who are alive, soft of, but with one or more chronic conditions that puts them in need of celebrex, nasonex, valtrex, or lunestra.

50 years ago children didn't even get type 2 diabetes, now it's an emerging epidemic, along with a long list of ailments that used to be rare and now have been mainstreamed. Things like asthma, acid reflux and arthritis, allergies, adult achne, attention deficiet disorder, and autism; and that's just the A's.

Doesn't anyone ever wonder why we live with all this illness? I'll tell you why. At the LA county fair last week they were serving something called fried Coke. Now my first thought was what a waste of a perfectly good 8 ball...but no they actually pour the coca cola syrup into a fryer and then pour it into a cup and top it with sugar and whip cream and of course a cherry because you know fruit is good for you. Would it really be much more unhealthy to get molested by one of the carnies?

In Hillary Clinton's Health plan the words nutrition and exercise appear once, the word drugs 14 times, just as the pharmaceutical companies wanted. You know their ad reasons love to say 'when diet and exercise fail', well diet and exercise don't fail. Brought home last week by a Duke University study that says exercise, yes exercise is just effective a cure for depression as paxel and zoloft. So ask your doctor if getting off your ass is right for you!

You know if Republicans can sell the idea of preemptive war, Democrats have to at least get us interested in preventive medicine. Someone has to stand up and say the answer isn't another pill the answer is spinach.
