What is More Expensive, Health Care Reform Or Prevention?

I want all my friends and family to think about this. And then pass it on to those they care about!

I was there for a radio show this last weekend for Jamba Juice…The turn out was a little on the scant side, but looking over at McDonald’s, the cars were just rolling in, the parking lot was full and the drive in had a huge line!

So here’s the deal.

I was asked by a radio guy in an interview once, “in these economic times, isn’t it better to get a low cost meal then a Jamba Juice?” Really, I mean…Really?

Let’s think about this for a minute?????????

Let’s break down the costs.

First of all, people are buying fast or processed foods not only for themselves, but for their children, and they are not buying healthy choices for the most part…they are buying what gave McDonald’s and all those other chains their financial base…junk food and lots of it.

Did you know that with the chemicals and additives in a happy meal, that its the equivalent of giving your child a cigarette? How many responsible parents are there out there giving their one and two year olds cigarettes? okay, now double the amount of food and an adult is eating the equivalent of 2 or 3 cigarettes per meal…oh, that sounds healthy!

Now, what happens after 10 or 15 years of eating like this? Have you ever heard of Cancer,

Diabetes, muscular atrophy???

The cost of treating cancer, (and remember that we are detecting not only diabetes at a young age, we are also detecting breast cancer and other cancers at a young age as well!) is going up and the sky right now is the limit!!!

In 1999, Radiation was $14,000.00 per month, chemo was more…for one year it was $300,000.00. That is $821.91 per day…and a 16oz Jamba is to expensive? Eating right is to expensive? $821.91 verses $4.00 to $12.00 per day to prevent cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis and other diseases is better then any other medication out there! And when you have no insurance, how do you pay $821.91 a day for your treatment? And that is just for one person in a household, what happens when all this catches up with you and you are not only trying to treat diabetes, but cancer and other health concerns on top of that and for different people under your roof?
