We each have a duty to keep fit, healthy.
It is widely known that other cultures that have adopted the American diet and lifestyle have suffered the effects of such habits in the form of chronic illnesses. The fact that our eating habits, sedentary lifestyle and subsequently chronic illnesses have infiltrated not only other cultures but also our beloved pets should give us cause for concern.
Unlike some countries, we have access to those things that can keep us nice and fit. We have a duty to reflect our blessed status in the form of a healthy lifestyle. In the end, other countries will admire us for our healthiness and Fido and his pal Rover will most certainly thank us.
