"Reasons to Buy Local and Organic = Good Health."This is the mantra of one the most, if not the trendiest competitive super markets in the business--Whole Foods. That's why according to the Guardian UK, when John Mackey Founder and CEO of the health food chain, ridiculed and mocked Obama's Health Care proposal--a declaration of war against providing Public Option to his employees on the Wall Street Journal, his progressive customers suddenly
felt both manipulated and infuriated. In essence, Mackey believes in being healthy, but only for those who can afford it. Is this why most items in his stores are completely
overpriced? Duh!

Here's an excerpt to Mackey's tangent (you can read it in its entirety HERE)
Many promoters of health-care reform believe that people have an intrinsic ethical right to health care—to equal access to doctors, medicines and hospitals. While all of us empathize with those who are sick, how can we say that all people have more of an intrinsic right to health care than they have to food or shelter?

Health care is a service that we all need, but just like food and shelter it is best provided through voluntary and mutually beneficial market exchanges. A careful reading of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution will not reveal any intrinsic right to health care, food or shelter. That’s because there isn’t any. This “right” has never existed in America
