If you said NO to most of these questions, I will assume that you are under 23 and/or a college student.
If you’re over 23, I have one question to ask:
Why are you choosing not to take care of your health?
which then leads to the question:
Should we take more individual responsibility when it comes to checking our health?
Should we do the basic things that help keep our bodies in working order before things get out of hand?
Is the onus on US to take individual responsibility for how our bodies work?
Do we care enough about ourselves that we do what we can to keep things in working order?
Or do we just not care enough about ourselves to do whatever preventive measures we can?
Should people take basic responsibility for their health?
