Health Care Reform

I am glad that health care is being debated throughout the nation. It is a topic that does need to be addressed, but I think we thinking too big right now. I think it should start small and focus on certain preventative services at first.

What I mean by preventative services is those services that have the greatest effect. The services that I'm thinking of are basic dental care and immunizations for all children. It not only helps prevent certain childhood diseases that could cause problems later in life, but it shouldn't increase the cost or length of receiving these services. I think this is a good start for a program that is needed.

I also think that they should do something about general weight control. Studies have shown that just 10 lbs less can significantly change your health.
