  •  Pollan touched on this point as well... (0+ / 0-)

    A doctor prescribes a pill for something and the patient takes it, the doctor says "lose weight/eat healthy" and the doctor is ignored.  

    However health industries will be incentivized to keep people healthy, and part of keeping people healthy will be encouraging them to make better food choices and as you have indicated folks will not make those choices on their own in many instances, so health insurance might lobby for increased restrictions on unhealthy additives, increased taxes on unhealthy foods that are too high in sugar or salts etc.  

    Politics is like playing Asteroids - You go far enough to the left and you end up on the right. Or vice-versa.
