9781479280841: What Matters: Leadership Values that Just Might Save America

America is the richest nation in the world, yet the health of our country’s citizens has been in increasingly rapid decline for years. Unless we begin to make significant changes, the odds are great that America’s health care system will eventually collapse under the weight of her citizens’ collective obesity. Americans spend $1.8 trillion a year on health care; now one of the biggest drivers of both public and private spending. Yet, what do we get for all the money? Increased rates of arthritis, obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and hypertension. We pay, but get sicker. What’s wrong? According to Dr. Kantor, we don’t have a true health care system in this country: we have a disease and accident management system — and it’s built to fail. It’s bankrupting us, threatening our prosperity at home and leadership on the world stage. Chronically ill people don’t go to work, and if they do, they don’t work well. And the rest of us foot the bill. In “What Matters,” Dr. Keith Kantor has carefully laid out a no-nonsense plan on what needs to be done to improve Americans’ collective health. What’s surprising is that many of his strategies do not require large investment by the individual, the government, or the private business community. Dr. Kantor is a United States Marine, a doctor of nutritional science and naturopathic medicine, an award-winning entrepreneur, an innovator and a business and industry leader, giving him a unique perspective on the simple - but at the same time, complex - relationships between food and the American healthcare situation. This practical guideline provides common sense solutions and illustrations that will put the country back on the road to good health and fiscal soundness. In addition, Dr. Kantor has woven in a lifetime of stories, anecdotes and life-lessons that make this an entertaining and easy read. As a side benefit, you might just pick up a few pointers from this Marine and CEO on how to be more effective in business and in life.
