Regarding the article "Public health gains key to coverage push: official":
For too many years our country has limited public health funding, thus constricting the very services that would have addressed the prevention of chronic diseases. The current epidemic of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer are all related to the obesity epidemic. Funding of public health agencies in all states is imperative to begin addressing this epidemic which is bankrupting our country.
