Kathleen Sebelius, one of the many laughingstocks to come out of the Obama Administration, went to Nationals Park in April to kick off the new baseball season by talking about... saving the planet and its effects on your health.
Accompanied by a man dressed as Theodore Roosevelt, Sebelius offered platitudes about the environment's health, and how, she believes, it is tied to our own. She explained (emphasis mine):
"Do you know that activities that are good for the planet can also be good for your health? Preserving energy and water; choosing healthy and locally grown food; walking and biking instead of driving; and recycling are some of the best things you can do for your health and the health of those around us. And these simple green activities can reduce the risk of health issues like asthma or even cancer!"
I assume Ms. Sebelius misspoke by connecting recycling with cancer, or perhaps she meant something else. But then again, this is a woman who has argued that, when the President said, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan" meant, "If you like your plan, the government will decide if you can keep your plan."
But Ms. Sebelius uses the word "can reduce" as weasel words to get out of her... odd statement. It's the equivalent of "may" or "could." Nearly every statement that comes from the Obama Administration is filled with words like these; unproven or ridiculous facts that can be weaseled out of because of "could" or "should" or "might" or "if."

Sebelius also did another video with Teddy, but this time she urged viewers to prevent the flu. You can watch that video below as well:
