Your physical health is more important than your financial health. However, financial health is a close second. Financially secure people live happier, healthier, longer lives.
Two industries threaten these two important types of health. Who is going to protect you from their predatory business practices?
Smoking is a glaring example of a source of major health risks. The industry lied to consumers for decades to protect company revenues, profits, and share prices. And, don’t forget the executives who made the decisions to hide their products’ risks. They earned millions while 400,000 Americans died every year.
After decades of controversy and millions of unnecessary deaths, our esteemed government finally took action when it required the printing of warning labels on packages of cigarettes. This warning was supposed to help smokers make informed decisions, but it was still their responsibility to protect their physical health.
