Unhealthy Habits: The Role of Circumstance

unhealthy eating habits
By Chris Sandel During the Vietnam War, the number of soldiers using opiate products on a regular basis was worryingly high. In the earlier stages of the war marijuana use was fairly common but from about 1969 onwards heroin and opium became more of an issue.
