Until we start educating people to be more accountable for their health, we will continue to bankrupt ourselves. People like the idea of taking a statin so "I can anything I want." instead of doing the right things. Why? Because for those with health insurance, these drugs are cheap. We will need to have a sliding scale where the drug copays go up sharply after a grace period for people to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Of course, that would require doctors to start putting away their prescription pads; i.e., become holistic health practioners. thanks, @J.Kim; Test??
