Another Idea To Lower Healthcare Costs.

When someone with aches, pains, or disease (due to living a sedentary & inactive lifestyle) visits their local pharmacy; their insurance company will (with a prescription card) allow them access to the "necessary" medicines for $30.


Why can't that same prescription card allow people access to some sneakers for $30 thus avoiding the medicine later? Besides, the medicine is only a 30-60 day supply. A good pair of running shoes will last 4-5x longer!


I'll tell you why. "Because there is more money to be made in treatment than in prevention." Put another way, "they don't care about your health, they care about your sickness."

Why am I the only one who mentions this?
