That isn't true though. On this thread diabetes was brought up and I talk all the time, including on this thread, about lifestyle created diseases. I talk about our over-reliance on drugs to fix things like blood pressure and cholesterol that many people could fix by being more healthy. Those things aren't about appearance, they are about health. I also talk about wanting to be healthy when I am in my 50's and 60's and how the decisions I make in my 20's and 30's will effect those as will everyone's. That is about healthy no appearance. I still want to be running into my 80's like some people I know and know of and still don't want to pop a handful of medication just to survive the day. I care very much about my health and not just my appearance though I do think that appearance is important. I also agree that it isn't everything. I can't speak for anyone else but I do see others talk about the non-visual aspects of health quite often in regards to weight.
