Health & Fitness apps are not saving people. People are saving people.

If information technology and deep-pocketed startups can't make people healthier, what can? One of the most effective proven solutions is shockingly low-tech. In the late 1990s, as diabetes was noticeably on the rise, the National Institutes of Health wanted to see whether there was a better way to intervene, so it set up a test. It took three groups -- hundreds of middle-aged people in each -- from all over the country: One group received metformin, a prediabetes drug; another group, the control, received a placebo; and the third underwent a "lifestyle-modification program," with the goal of at least 7% weight loss.

The study was meant to last five years, but the results were so striking that they were published a year early, in 2002. The lifestyle intervention not only beat out the placebo, but was twice as effective as the drug too: Nearly 60% of the third prediabetes group never got the disease.

Over the past months, I’ve been excited to share my rather primitive augmented and virtual reality creations with any who will spare a few minutes. Most of the time, anyone I can wrangle to my tech setup shows the same amount of enthusiasm. This is especially promising, as I realize my asking pe...  ...Read more

Like every startup founder who had invested a lot of sweat, money and time in building something, I stayed adamant like a lioness protecting her cubs.
