A Major Breakthrough in the Prevention of Diseases
Praestat cautela quam medela
Precaution is better than a cure
(Nice rhyming Latin Proverb)
After years and years of relentless preaching and propaganda the medical profession has finally, with a little help from the pharmaceutical industry, succeeded in getting her message across that precaution or prevention of diseases can not be achieved by:
· a nutritious, healthy and balanced diet;
· a balanced lifestyle which would include some relaxation to lower stress-levels;
· sufficient exercise; and
· avoidance of environmental and other toxins.
But that the prevention of diseases and ill-health is only possible through:
+++ regular health checks which would include x-rays and scans;
+++ daily supplements, in particular the synthetic vitamin and mineral supplements; and
+++ preventative surgery.
The medical world is absolutely delighted with this breakthrough and is now looking ahead at some very prosperous years.
