Re: Pills are not the answer to unhealthy lifestyles
Healthy Lifestyles can Delay your Pills Dependent state.
Pills or surgery are not a answer for obesity. Patches of nicotine or pellets are not a remedy for smoking or tobacco use. Statins are not the cure for atherosclerosis . Antidepressants or anxiolytic are not the only treatment for stress.
Drugs are not only the treatment for Non communicable disesses such as stroke heart attack COPD cancers diabetes including hypertension.
More than drugs , healthy diet, healthy environments, healthy habits and stress free state are also the corner stones for healthy lifestyles and it keeps you away from lifestyles diseases.
Healthy lifestyles can also delay the periods for the initiation of drug treatment in diseased state and it can also delay the early pills dependent health state.
Healthy lifestyles may also delay the early development of many age related diseases.
