Making prescriptive recommendations on what each of us needs to do to contribute our individual grain of salt to making health and nutrition interventions more effective and sustainable would be presumptuous on my part (although I have attempted it elsewhere) (Schuftan, C.,1982,1985,1988). This article has no such intention. It just is a wake-up call for some and an always timely reminder for others. It is about being more critical about what we do and see. This, as a basis for each of us to develop our own (new) vision for the future: a vision that fits our own specific situation, one that we commit ourselves to share, and one that we are willing to implement working with others.
