We’re so Unhealthy: WHY? Part #2

Yesterday I covered briefly a number of reasons why Health might have escaped us — do please look back at that blog. Most of the reasons were to do with TIME and how that dictates to us, if we let it. I promised that today I’d cover WHAT RULES US and PROFIT. Before I add to yesterday’s blog […]
