Executive Order - Establishing the National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council

This executive order was signed last week, which is designed to modify our lifestyle, and is looking for American citizens that do not exhibit "healthy behavior." The President’s desired lifestyle behavior modifications are detailed in Sec. 6 (c):
  • smoking cessation;
  • proper nutrition;
  • appropriate exercise;
  • mental health;
  • behavioral health;
  • sedentary behavior (see Sec. 3 [c]);
  • substance-use disorder; and
  • domestic violence screenings.
