Please join us on In Context at noon on Monday, August 13, 2012 as we discuss the connection between the U.S. diet and exploding health care costs.
A few facts: Health care now consumes almost one-fifth of U.S. gross domestic product. Most of that expense is for treating chronic disease. According to the Center for Disease Control, 35% of Americans are obese. Is it something we eat?
Our special guest, Eliot Snaith, has been keenly studying the food and health care connection. We’ll, also, be joined by guest co-host Jeep Ward. Call in during the show, or email your questions to email@example.com. The show will be broadcast on WPKN 89.5 FM and stream at www.wpkn.org.
