People have too much trust in the almighty medicine, and accordingly do not show health efforts to prevent disease, especially chronic. In most cases, atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, diabetes, obesity and other diseases are results of unhealthy lifestyle. Therefore, movement, sun, clean air and water were and will always be our best friends.
