The Daily Echo April 24, 2014. Health & Fitness. As a physician I see the effects daily of patients experiencing all kinds of health problems because they don’t take care of themselves. The fact is we are either getting healthier or getting sicker. We must exercise and eat right or we will eventually suffer from diseases that are caused by obesity and poor choices. We all understand that if we don’t plant a seed it can never grow. Why then do we think we can put harmful substances, fatty foods, processed foods and the many other poisons and not suffer from our bodies breaking down.
