is a wonderful word that is too little appreciated by people in North America and many other countries. Just look at recent news.
Prevention applies to mega forest fires (controlled burns in advance), earthquakes (better construction in California than Iran saved lives during similar levels of
earth tremors), and many diseases.
Unfortunately, the medical - pharmacology complex finds it far more profitable to treat diseases with pills and "procedures" (surgery), than to prevent them with good diet and lifestyle practices.
Unfortunately, most of us prefer magic cures to taking responsibility for our own health.
What is far worse is that many tests and surgeries are popular, but actually do little for overall longevity.
CHOLESTEROL level in blood is easy to test, but is not the whole story for heart attack and stroke. But pill pushers love to sell drugs to reduce cholesterol levels.
Bypass Surgery is followed by new arterial blockage in only a few years. Balloon angioplasty is less traumatic, less
expensive, and provides immediate results. More important is the growing knowledge that diet can reduce, prevent, and even reverse plaque build up that leads to blockage.
Various forms of diabetes and cancer can be prevented by good choices in diet, without those expensive pills and other treatments that are needed after disease symptoms
Of course, no one lives for ever, but good health practices can result in long and active lives.
** Diet with FACTS, not MYTHS. **
