The miracle drug

Another nugget that I gleaned from Bryson’s book, The Body.

Medical innovation contributed to about 20% of the life-saving innovation in the last century. The biggest life-saving change has been improvements to our diet, lifestyle, and hygiene!

Eat better, exercise, wash your hands and chill out. Maybe instead of shaking hands from now on, we should all bump elbows when we say hello.

If there was a pill that had the same benefits as exercise, diet, hygiene it would be the drug of a lifetime.
