not what you expected? people see time as their enemy and, once again, they are wrong. time is an irresistable ally. it does not matter what you choose to do as long as it obeys nature. then, it is a matter of time. every hour, day, week, year, decade, a lifetime - if you do the same thing every day of your life, that defines your health. there is great power in a continuous environment. this is also true of things that are not good for you. tap water, smoking, hydrogenated fats, refined sugar.
whether it is good or bad for you, no matter how small a matter, the continuous longterm effect is powerful and takes a lot to overcome.
i am almost 50. i am looking forward to the next 70 years. i may be healthier then than now.
