But many of us will think that we are not healthy and our elders are more healthy. May not be true. There were people with health problems earlier also and today also. There were healthy people earlier also and now also. Your health depends on your habits. So I think by adopting healthy eating habits and having good exercises may give us a long life.
Keep your Face to the SunShine
Today, by age of 40 we become bald, have high BP or sugar or hypertension or thyroid, and what not. Where is the health? Most of us are popping up pills just to stay alive.
Yes, we have advanced in medical science and say that we have increased life expectancy by so and so years but, if I spend 5 to 10 years in the hospital during old age then what is the use of that increased life expectancy. I would prefer dying at my home disease-free rather than lying in a hospital bed asking doctor to save me. I don't consider extending the life on life support system as an increased life expectancy.
Yes, we have eradicated Polio, controlled TB, and a few more big achievements but still haven't achieved a healthy life. Each of the products we eat is full of chemicals and pesticides. We are eating more and more of artificial and packaged products and obesity is increasing in teenagers and young ones.
We have a lot of comforts but not health, we have added a few more numbers to our life but not real life.
Live before you leave.
