Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Modern people are healthier than people who lived 100 years ago.
Well, I definitely disagree with it.
People in the past had a much healthier lifestyle. They used to walk many miles per day, so exercising was simply a part of their daily routine. People in the past weren't addicted to smartphones, laptops, or social networks, all of which are thought to cause insomnia. This inability to sleep is dangerous and is tied to all sorts of health issues such as obesity, diabetes, depression and cardiovascular disease. Lack of sleep limits our mental and physical abilities overall.
Furthermore, people 100 years ago never relied on medicines such as antibiotics to cure fever or headache, they simply let ailments heal on their own. With the help of a good diet and sufficient sleep, they became immune to certain diseases. Also, natural resources such as air and water were less contaminated in the past, so pathogens were less likely to be introduced into their lives.
