Huckabee On Health Video Link.

Below is a link to a video at a diabetic life web site, of Mike Huckabee’s work to improve health for himself and for Arkansas as its governor. Note 2 things:

1) His actions as governor were neither to invest in unnecessarily costly programs, NOR to coerce people’s behavior. Rather, they presented people with better information and options. “Junk food” was not eliminated from public schools. Healthy options were made available and emphasized.

2) As Huckabee says relative to the topic, we need to focus more on health relative to health care. Good health drastically lowers our vulnerability to costly chronic disease, not to mention increasing the quality of a probably longer life. Health is increased and health care costs reduced by this focus.
