While pressuring Americans to take extreme measures to potentially reduce health risks for one disease only and otherwise regularly inserting themselves into people’s private lives, it appears corporate America will not recommend better-proven protective health actions: encouraging healthy eating, exercise, and friendship. This was evidenced in multiple Super Bowl commercials on Sunday.

Here’s one from Doritos that inserts its highly synthetic product into a gorgeous nature setting and depicts beautiful animals getting dopamined-up on food chemicals that appear to directly affect the brain. Not to mention that regularly consuming junk food like this makes people fat, which puts them at greater risk from a Covid infection — and pretty much every other health problem.

Here’s the utterly depressing ad from Facebook alter ego Meta, which depicts its main characters losing their favorite things to do together and pretends that the energy and joy of a live jam session can be revived or recreated in virtual reality. Anyone who has ever participated in a jam session knows how utterly ridiculous that is. There is simply no substitute for being in person for that kind of musical and personal connection.

And we all know that people’s skills don’t grow in the Metaverse; they atrophy. You can be a Guitar Hero while still being completely unable to play an actual guitar.

In addition, it’s been proven that Facebook products like, well, Facebook and Instagram can increase people’s mental instability and unhappiness. They’re designed to act like dopamine slot machines, and that means distorting people’s emotional processes in addiction rather than the healthy ups and downs you get from in-person connection.

We know that people with stronger personal connections and greater mental well-being are far more likely to recover, and recover faster, from any disease, from Covid to cancer.
