Health in Your Hands???

"Your health in your hands" reads the tagline on a website ...

I thought, "True enough, but are there no other hands?"

What about the hands that manage the air I breath?
Or the hands that grow, process and package the food I eat?
The hands that mange the water I drink?
The hands that fill our world with ads to eat this, buy that, drink all the more?

Our health is in lots of hands.
Hands that would just as soon remain anonymous.

And, of course, if we get sick, it's our fault.
No one else's.
Because our health is in our hands.

Or so the other hands want us to believe.
