Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Healthcare Deceit

Michael Pollan, author of several books including "In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto." and "The Omnivore's Dilemma" writes a compelling article about the wrong angle on healthcare. The availability of cheap food, largely meat-based, is making Americans overweight and causing many chronic diseases, such as diabetes. As Pollan states, "the government is putting itself in the uncomfortable position of subsidizing both the costs of treating Type 2 diabetes and the consumption of high-fructose corn syrup" instead on focusing on disease prevention.
