Health is finally hip. There are gyms on every corner, bottled water in every vending machine, and protein bars in every gas station. People are checking food labels in grocery stores and calories on restaurant menus. Athletic wear has become leisure wear, and everyone seems to be on a special diet.
At the same time, disease and disabilities are eating our lunch. Crippling health statistics dominate the news, but we keep popping antacids, loosening our belts and burning the candle at both ends. John Patton recognizes thatpeople are not dumb--they are busy. Very busy. John Patton cuts through the marketing and medical jargon of health to deliver a frank and fun conversation about rock-solid health habits that can become as brainless as brushing your teeth.
Buckle up. You are about to get healthy, without even thinking!
