Why is preventative care talked about (and paid for) so little? From what I understand nearly 90% of diabetes is preventable with diet, exercise and a healthy weight and yet its a heavy burden not only on our healthcare system but our ecomomy and productivity. The US ranks quite low globally on general health and diet and yet we're focused solely on treating people after a problem presents instead of preventing the problem in the first place.
