kenneth Cooper in the running for Surgeon General

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Most of you probably know that Dr. Kenneth Cooper popularized the word "aerobics". According to the publication Club Business Industry, it seems that he is a possible candidate for our next Surgeon General.

At a recent conference in D.C. he presented a 15 point proposal. Hi suggestions included a $1,000 federal tax break per person to encourage a healthy life style- $250 for a body mass index under 25, blood pressure under 140/90, cholestral under 200, and not smoking. He also proposed tax breaks for corporate wellness programs.
Since we all know that taking care of ourselves is AHEM essential for a healthy ski season, this may be good news for some of us. $1000 can go a slightly long way during the ski months.
