As much as this is, without a doubt, an issue where 'individual effort' really does matter, there's a lot of larger factors at work.

Sorry, I disagree with the tack of 'rationalizations'.

If people took responsibility for their bodies and what went in them, even to the extents that are available re: available food, most of the problems would be solved.

The human body is an amazing machine. But it has to be used. It's no different than other animals' bodies: it can handle a lot, as long as it's used.

For example, nutrients are best utilized when they're eaten, not ingested as supplements. The body's systems are in place for good reasons and when we circumvent them...for convenience, for example...then we're essentially doing an injustice to the whole notion of physical forms. And yet people believe they can do an 'end-run' on proper eating...and I'm differentiating between 'feeding' and eating' here...by 'supplementing'. Wrongo.

So much can be attained even within our poisonous culture by returning our bodies to an active, mobile state. Not 100% of their potential, but I'll tell ya; give me the average sedentary, over-eating, disaffected person...and I'll give them great health in six months...and it won't 'cost' them anything.
