There is an old proverb that says 'prevention is better than cure.' It is wiser to avoid a disease by following a healthy regimen of life than to contract it, and then seek remedies.
Life is short, and, if a considerable part of it is taken up in inviting or not knowing diseases and then curing them, how will man manage to live a life worth the name? Every effort should be made to prevent health, troubles and difficulties.
