    Great post! And I agree with most of your points regarding how we as humans behave in spite of knowing what is good for us. But I'm not quite sure I would say that this is the reason why the Indian woman continues to cook as she does even though she knows that it is causing harm to her. There could be other factors, such as the lack of resources, she could be worried about the risk of adopting such an innovation in her culture when no one else has, or maybe she has other pertinent issues that demand her attention. Writing her situation off as one that characterizes bad habits seems a little off given that we don't know the reality she faces on the day to day basis.

    great article. really interesting real world connections you make.
    but, how well do i know myself...well enough to have made the conscious decision to commit to being a commuting cyclist. take the plunge, you can do it, and it's so rewarding!

    gorgeous article, tyler! i'd love to talk about building an anthology of introspective memoirs around the central theme of empathy.
