Sue Turner’s secret is out and it’s nationwide. United Supermarkets’ whole-health manager has given up smoking after 26 years. She along with others in the community are taking part in a four-week smoking cessation program sponsored by Tobacco Free Amarillo and the American Cancer Society, says the Amarillo Globe-News Online.


Moderator’s Comment: Should retailers take a more active
role in promoting whole health issues with their own employees? Can managers
and associates truly support whole health initiatives if they smoke, overeat,
etc.?


Firstly, we applaud Ms. Turner for her actions and wish
her health and happiness.


We suppose that it should not come as a surprise to find
a whole health manager with habits that are harmful to their health. After all,
you can find some of the least healthy people in physician’s offices around
the country. They’re call doctors.


Our advice to whole health managers and doctors is, practice
what you preach. [George
