Health is not the absence of disease. Yet because disease, at least the treatment of disease, is such an enormous booming industry in this country, contributing billions of dollars to the economy every year, the national emphasis on health is not about health at all. Indeed, it is all about the absence of disease. One has only to turn on the TV to realize that I speak the truth. Unfortunately, this is why most attempts at heralding a healthy lifestyle are little more than an accessory to offset the tedious narrative of healthcare and Medicare in America.
