Ending this crisis all comes down to overcoming hesitancy. What is wrong with these people? They know the right thing to do, but instead stubbornly rely on excuses like not trusting the science, or needing time to see if it really works, or needing a friend or a faith leader to nudge them along. Come on. If you can't do it for yourself, do it for your family that needs you to stay alive and healthy. The solution to the nation's health is simple and accessible: Start eating and drinking right. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
