It is not often that we as American’s look in depth on topics that do not affect us directly or anything that takes time to occur. However, it is time that we stop being a self-centered society and look beyond the scope of desires.
When it comes to the topic of health, obesity has become a global epidemic. For example, London is suffering from child obesity as much as we are, a place that was once filled with happy, healthy children has now followed the footsteps of America, where unhealthy foods and their impact on our health are starting to determine the quality of our life.
Meanwhile, there are a few individuals out there who are looking to improve our health through what they are most passionate about, for instance, the Adidas company in Germany, are looking to combine engineering and fashion to improve our lifestyle and how we can use concepts and ideas that people are passionate about for the betterment of our lives. This can be shown with the work that they are doing with their athletes and how they are monitoring the health of their players, which they hope will soon become something that everyday citizens can have and use to their benefit. There are also individuals who look to create interactive clothing that can adjust and mature with there owners, which can potentially lead to individuals buying less clothing in the long run. There are others also working to create a more sustainable society by biologist and fashion designers to create clothing that can be made with bacteria.
