How about a tax break for the healthy?

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: OHIP should cover natur­opa­thy (July 6)

Not only do I agree with the writer, I’d like to take it a step fur­ther. I don’t claim that I never slip up but for the most part out of con­cern for my health I try to eat healthy and ex­er­cise. As a re­sult I rarely need to see a doc­tor or pur­chase a pre­scrip­tion. Med­i­cal ex­penses are par­tially tax de­ductible; wouldn’t it make sense to give a tax break to the peo­ple who are not drain­ing the health-care sys­tem?
