It didn't just happen

Here's a great quote from The Story of Stuff that's very applicable to the world of health:

The old way [of consumption] didn't just happen. It wasn't like gravity where we just have to live with it. People created. And we're people too. So let's create a new way.

The quote references the planned move in the 1950s to design our US economy around the mentality of constant consumption.

Just because 'cradle to grave consumption' is the norm now, it doesn't mean that we're stuck with it moving forward. Same goes for health. Just because most of the world has lived in sickness and disease up untl now, it doesn't mean we can't create a new possibility together.

The old way was created by a small few who had lots of concentrated power. The new way will come from many who've have distributed power. That's why it's your right, your duty to tell the world how freaking healthy and great you feel. It's your duty to keep moving forward, ask questions, get educated, get healthy, feel good and spread the health gospel to as many people as you can.

If you haven't seen The Story of Stuff yet, it is certainly worth checking out.
