Regarding health care, the focus of society should be on prevention rather than cure. Is it really helpful to society as a whole to keep coming up with better and better cures for diseases that are are largely the result of unhealthy living practices?
These cures, whilst being very welcome from the individual in needs point of view, unfortunately obscure and thus prolong the damage causing behaviours wrongly deemed to be acceptable by misguided society.
Physical ailments are often the mirror of emotional, intellectual and spiritual dis-ease. "Treatments" that merely suppress symptoms may provide temporary relief but they may be detrimental to long term health.
