Is Health a De-Valued Commodity?

I ask you this because I have truly been taking stock of things in my life and the way I manage myself and my health. Upon further consideration, I began to realize that I am not alone in slighting my own needs, and that most Americans value their health by one simple litmus strip;...

Teaching the Teachers

June 5, 2011
By
