MORTGAGE CRISIS AND DISEASE: STICKING TO BAD HABITS
The current mortgage crisis may be a reflection of human nature, sticking to bad habits. In the same sense, resolution or improvement of chronic medical conditions such as obesity, emphysema, alcoholism, drug addiction may likewise be affected by sticking to bad habits. Why do people stick to bad habits despite knowing they are potentially harmful? According to a study by Dr. Cindy Jardine, University of Alberta and reported in various sources including indiablitz.com
, it may be that the public is undereducated in the details of why the habits are harmful and those professionals who want to break the bad habits of others need to look into the underlying social aspects leading to and continuing the habit. Failure to educate, failure to try to change the underlying psycho-social basis for the habit and what I find as the unethical promotion of bad habits will only make the consequences inevitable and likely untreatable. ..Maurice.
