The Drive Through Pharmacy Paradox

On my way to get groceries the other day, I passed a drive through pharmacy that had a long line of cars. I was thinking of the top ailments affecting this country and the ones that came to mind were obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

The common denominator between these are unhealthy diets and lack of exercise. I know, I know, even if people walked to get their drugs, it wouldn't change anything. But it's kind of ironic, maybe funny, that people won't walk to get the medication they need because they aren't walking enough. I just wanted to tell them, "if you walked to the store you might not even have to buy these drugs."

But then again if they didn't have to buy the drugs, they wouldn't walk to the store and then they'd need the drugs. On my way home, I passed a fast food place that also had a drive through packed with cars. I wonder where they where those cars came from or were going to.
