You've got a problem, see, and the fix for that problem won't make things better. No reversal is in the cards. In fact, the fix is a hassle and there could be unpleasant side effects. The only payoff is the knowledge, imparted by experts in fancy white coats, that you will be stopping matters, probably, from getting much worse. Well, for a lot people, it's hard to get psyched about that kind of choice. It's easier to say, Can't I just do those exercises with the squeeze ball instead of getting cut open? Can't we just drive less and use paper straws instead of performing surgery on the entire economy?
No, we can't. Get the surgery.
