Does juggling qualify as a workout? MizFit says, “YES!”

In case you missed it in the comments section of last week’s conventional wisdom post, Michael Pollan wrote a great Op-Ed piece in the NY Times about the potential lobby war between big agra and insurance companies. And yes, this time insurance companies might actually fight with us.

  1. I enjoy Michael Pollan’s Op-Ed piece, however he should have mentioned that big agra’s biggest supporter is the government itself, via the USDA.

    From the USDA website:

    USDA has created a strategic plan to implement its vision. The framework of this plan depends on these key activities: expanding markets for agricultural products and support international economic development, further developing alternative markets for agricultural products and activities,…

    It’s the soy, corn, and wheat “products” that caused the problem in the first place.

  2. Thanks so much for the link love.

    Id say Im gonna explore the other links BUT I anticipate being too busy enjoying my ceviche (shrimp).

  4. The war against big agra is so obvious and directly under their nose that it’s a surprised the insurance companies have not seen this sooner.

    In any case, as for the rest of us, let’s leave the health insurance industry to scramble through bureaucracy to figure things out. Meanwhile we’ll keep taking measures for prevention against controllable diseases, and continue to live a life of quality health.

  5. Mark — glad you enjoyed the video first look at the Moc! It’s sort of a full circle linking here as you introduced me to VFFs, which ultimately led to a VFF-centric fan blog. Funny how it all works out 🙂 Thanks for the link!
