Yes I agree with Zulie. The first and most obvious step on the nutrition/health side of the equation is to incentivise behaviour, not dictate behaviour. Of course this would start with subsiding whole earth grown foods and taxing processed/fast-food sources. The fact that on the corner of pretty much every major city there are food establishments that peddle chronic disease causing foods is abhorrent. It’s a major problem. We should be thankful that we can now engineer foods that are supremely pleasurable to consume. Yet the frequency with which a lot of people consume these foods is totally unbalanced. The fact that we promote overconsumption of such foods is outrageous. It’s killing people.
