US costs per capita for healthcare keep rising and are out of control. We feel there are two reason:
1. Companies keep developing more and more medicines to TREAT sick people. New pills, new procedures, new specialists, etc.
2. We are in bad shape and not PREVENTING health issues. UNICEF as US kids ranked last in physical health. The British Journal of Sports Medicine has US kids ranked 47 out of 50 countries in the world in fitness. These kids are healthcare time-bombs.
With more and more kids becoming physically inactive, health issues will rise. And, healthcare costs will climb even more than they are today. We must put PREVENTION in healthcare for our kids.
The WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION has stated, "When we invest $1.00 to increase physical activity, we will save $3.20 in healthcare expenses." Look at the rise of healthcare costs. Let’s put our ‘Miracle Drug’ to work to prevent increasing healthcare costs.
