Why do we choose the way we do

The newest findings have Americans listed as some of the unhealthiest people on the face of the earth. This is a very interesting finding as so much of the world is in a state of malnutrition and are listed as below the level of poverty. How can this be when the United States is such a wealthy country with more wonderful choices for a healthy lifestyle than anywhere else in the world.

I guess that when you are given such a wide variety of choices, many people will always choose badly. Why, because we can, so we do. I think in other places in the world when good things are offered people without choices will choose a good thing, where as when you have good choices on every corner, when a great thing comes around, you may just have a tomorrow will be a day to choose better or wisely.

I guess we as a nation are spoiled to the degree that although we know better, we do not have a pressing need to make a change, even though in our heart of hearts we know better.
