Of all the most desirable things we can obtain in a life time, good health is unarguably the most valuable treasure man can be blessed with. No wonder an old adage quotes truly, "Health is Wealth".
Good health is the natural untampered prestine condition of the anatomical and physiological constitution of man and the disease state is an aberration in nature brought about by contacts with pathogens, poor nutrition, hazardous environments and compromised physiological functions just to mention a few.
With the above said, good health although a golden treasure is not something unattainable. It is an achievable state of being, attained through some scientifically proven way of living and one such amongst many is the inclusion of fresh vegetables in our diet.
