James Currier opens his health speech with the shocking statistic that states 75% of healthcare problems stem from behavioral issues. He lists these problems as over-eating, smoking and lack of exercise. He also includes the data that the major costs in healthcare comes from diabetes, obesity and heart disease, which are also a result of behavior.
Currier's health speech expresses that people need to be made aware of this and motivated by a variety of different factors in order to overcome such. These motivations will have to come from the main human motivators to appeal to a variety of personality types. Only then will people be able to overcome this and will America be able to battle the healthcare epidemic.
