4) Engage in exercise on a regular basis, 2-5 times a week.
5) Supplement any key nutrients that you can't get from your food.
6) Avoid toxins as much as possible, and detox your body if necessary.
That about covers it. Unfortunately many Americans don't follow this which means we need a lot of sickness care.
I certainly agree at least half of those above are human rights. For example, no one has the right to deprive you of a good night's rest.
How about: No one has the right to dump toxins into your air or water supply. Or into your food.
Amen to that.
Now of course, protecting that right is an incredibly complex problem. Anything can be contaminated by accident, and some chemicals may not be known to be toxic until after the fact. No one owns the oceans or the air in the atmosphere and we can't fully protect against toxic dumping into them.
So I can't come up with a good solution, but I certainly agree with the principle.
Also: Don't be born with genetic problems.
While genetics plays a key role, I am being swayed by the science showing that the right balance of factors can balance out your gene behavior through gene activation.
That certainly can't and won't solve everyone's problems but if you do have genetic risk factors you can try and reduce those risk factors.
And of course, no matter how hard you try and how well you live, there's always the chance you'll come down with something nasty anyway. It's smaller, but it's still there. In that, hope you die quickly so you don't run up too big a bill for your family to pay.
Right, you can take precautions and reduce your risks but life doesn't owe any of us anything.
