Why is the text so tiny, pale and difficult to read?

I am a medical professional. Microscopic razor thin fonts are completely useless to myself and many of my coworkers, patients, and friends... some of whom have completely stopped using Mint because the text now creates such eyestrain that it causes:
1. migraines (splitting, pounding  headaches that are sometimes accompanied with nausea and vomiting... and can cause loss of consciousness in extreme cases ).  
2. Vertigo (profound dizziness that can result in nausea and vomiting... and dehydration in extreme cases).
3. Headaches (the regular everyday variety. Usually not as serious as migraines, but still can cause nausea and vomiting.)
4. Projectile vomiting due to increased inter-cerebral pressure brought on by a combination of any of the above.

Please make the font larger, BOLDER and darker !
For health reasons if nothing else.

Come on  !
You can do it!
Be a trend setter !
Stop following the crowd !
Quit being pale, drab, and insignificant !
BOLDLY go where no one has gone lately !
Everybody's using that boring style these days !
Get off the teeny tiny text bandwagon !
Stop following the crowd !
Show some originality !
BE BOLD I dare you !
Blaze a new trail !
Thank you

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
