Letter: If only the government would tell us how to eat
Who of your readers could use another $12,000? This Affordable Health Care Act called Obamacare should have/could have included an educational program on eating well. It’s a well-established conclusion that the knowledge and application of selecting, preparing and eating primarily a plant-based diet dramatically reduces the risk of ALL diseases including cancers, heart diseases, diabetes and obesity. If the government truly wanted to keep its citizens healthy, a small adjustment in their eating habits could reduce health care costs and thereby reduce health care premiums by at least $1,000 per month.
