Practical usage in speaking
Why a healthy diet is important in 2 minutes
In fact sometimes i get too much worried about being critically ill or having a rare illness that i forgot the enhancments of medical treatments in the 21th century.
One i read a paper in which i saw that number of infectious diseases are growing each day and more people are fighting for their lives , so it’s a kind of normal these day to be sensetive about what you eat .
Side effects , adverse eating habits are the one ticket to a hospital or even taking an overdose. To be honest you need to start thinking about what you put in your body.
If you are in a poor healthb you get a higher chance of say a streaming cold and to shake of it you’ll need a healthy diet.
