Currently health care costs make up the majority of the budget. Recently statistics say that 43% of these costs are avoidable. We believe that the number 1 reason is because Government continues to put their money into paying this ever rising bill instead of providing programs and education necessary for people to learn how to become healthy!
The age group 20-39 is currently the most in active in history. Child obesity has tripled in the past 20 years. The life expectancy of our children is not as long as our own, again another first! This only stops if government gives the people the tools!
Private medical plans cover certain costs however they limit this coverage to an amount that does not give the long term support that some people need. Also they do not cover many programs that will offer that support and education.
Government should offer a tax credit or deduction to approved programs so more Canadians can access quality help and education!
The Biggest Loser is a show created to challenge and encourage overweight contestants to shed pounds in a safe and recommended manner through comprehensive diet and exercise as they compete for a grand prize of $250,000.
It began in the United States and has moved on to Australia. It is now Canada's time to become healthy and inspiring to others.
The history of this show was to help unfortunate individuals get the look they always dreamed of.
Whether it be plastic surgery, dental work, etc...
