Because of these and other advancements in modern medical science we're living longer than ever. But we have developed new killers in the last century. One half of all deaths in the western world are attributable to two illnesses: heart disease and cancer. And yet these same diseases are virtually unknown among underdeveloped peoples. With all our great advancements in medicine and contemporary health care, it seems that the best we can do is simply treat the symptoms.
We may wash our hands more often and cover our mouths when we cough, but there appears to be something about the way we live that subjects us to the ravages of these modern afflictions. One doesn't need to do too much study to discover that our diet and our lifestyles are what subject us to this duo of diseases.
What we are eating is not what our bodies need, and much of what we do eat is harming our bodies. Our bodies need food: that "stuff" which God created for our bodies and what our bodies were designed to be nourished by. Instead we feed ourselves with non-foods that introduce into these perfectly-designed bodies, all kinds of substances that were never intended for human consumption.
Our modern-day automobiles are masterpieces of design and engineering. With their computer-driven systems, they function at amazingly high levels of proficiency. Who would think of putting diesel fuel into the gas tank or honey where the engine oil goes? That would be stupid; it would ruin a beautifully-designed car.
Who doesn't love their pet? Whether it's a purebred or a mutt, we love our family dog. We make sure that he has his scheduled vaccinations, bathe him regularly, and keep him from suffering from fleas, as best we can. And we feed him the best food that we can afford. So why don't we give him a candy bar while we're enjoying one? Because it wouldn't be good for him; everyone knows that!
