This article frames health as a medical responsibility because it provides information about a medical problem called "metabolic syndrome" that the United States and people around the world face today. "Fifty million people are believed to have the metabolic syndrome, according to the American Heart Association - and that's just in the U.S." However, this article doesn't seem to come to an answer for this "metabolic syndrome" or why Americans aren't eating this way. This article could be framed differently into a societal responsibility by exploring why individuals with bad health aren't eating this way based on the community they live in, their race, and their social status. Food deserts are common in low income communities and these individuals would benefit from eating a diet like the Greeks.
