7. What do business leaders say about employee recognition?

"The medical literature tells us that the most effective ways to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and many more problems are through healthy diet and exercise. Our bodies have evolved to move, yet we now use the energy in oil instead of muscles to do our work.“ -David Suzuki, Canadian academic, science broadcaster and environmental activist

"The abundance of cheap food with low nutritional value in the Western diet has wreaked havoc on our health; in America, one third of children and two thirds of adults are overweight or obese and are more likely to develop diabetes and cardiovascular disease." -Ellen Gustafson, American businessperson, sustainable food system activist and social entrepreneur

"As obesity creeps into preschools, and hypertension and Type II diabetes become pediatric problems for the very first time, the case for starting preventive health care in the cradle has become too compelling to keep ignoring." -Heidi Murkoff, Author, Founder of the What to Expect Foundation

"For diabetes in particular, we know there’s a relationship between lack of glucose regulation and complications like blindness and kidney failure. So if you were diabetic and you knew that you could get your glucose in a tight, normal range just by adjusting your lifestyle, wouldn’t that be great?" -Eric Topol, American cardiologist, geneticist, and digital medicine researcher

"Despite all of the fancy gimmicks and perceived power of modern medicine, the largest explosion of preventable, chronic diseases ever in the history of mankind has occurred as a direct result of modern medicine and scientific reductionism. Modern medicine is not an antidote for the incredible harms caused by the modern food industry, but it is an effective distraction." -Dr Charles C. Harpe, MD, American author of Naturvore Power

"The situation with regard to insulin is particularly clear. In many parts of the world diabetic children still die from lack of this hormone. ... [T]hose of us who search for new biological facts and for new and better therapeutic weapons should appreciate that one of the central problems of the world is the more equitable distribution and use of the medical and nutritional advances which have already been established." -Charles Herbert Best, Canadian-American scientist and co-discoverer of insulin

"I am not saying do not give people equal health services, but do not pretend that giving more money for diabetes or chronic diseases means you are going to deal with the origins of health inequalities." -Andrew Lansley, British politician

"If you know people with Type 2 diabetes, there’s a high likelihood they will have different medication regimes and different lifestyle options. When we label all these various types as the same thing, we treat them the same way, and they should not be treated the same way." -Gurjeet Singh, Indian businessman

"A few drugs – such as beta-blockers, statins and glycogen control medications have proved very effective at managing hypertension, heart disease, diabetes and strokes. Most insurance plans charge something for them. Why not make drugs like these free? Not for everyone, but just the groups for whom they are provably effective." -Sendhil Mullainathan, Professor of Economics at Harvard University, and author of Scarcity: Why Having Too Little Means So Much

"Diabetes is a great example whereby, giving the patient the tools, you can manage yourself very well." -Clayton M. Christensen, American scholar, Kim B. Clark Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School of Harvard University

"We know that if you just were to take the drugs that you were supposed to take for diabetes or hypertension, just take it, as opposed to not take it, we could save $7,000, $3,000 per patient per year." -Patrick Soon-Shiong, South African businessman

"When enough people care about autism or diabetes or global warming, it helps everyone, even if only a tiny fraction actively participate." -Seth Godin, American author and former dot com business executive

"Think about it: Heart disease and diabetes, which account for more deaths in the U.S. and worldwide than everything else combined, are completely preventable by making comprehensive lifestyle changes. Without drugs or surgery." -Dean Ornish, President and founder of the non-profit Preventive Medicine Research Institute in California

"Diabetes is an all-too-personal time bomb which can go off today, tomorrow, next year, or 10 years from now - a time bomb affecting millions like me and the children here today." -Mary Tyler Moore, American actress

"With all of the holiday cheer in the air, it’s easy to overlook the ingredients in the foods. Ingredients such as salt, sugar, and fat - all of which leads to diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, strokes, heart disease, and cancer." -Lee Haney, American athlete
