Healthy versus unhealthy people. The way I see it, a healthy person can be forced to join the unhealthy group at any time, through no fault of her own. And an unhealthy person may be moved back to the healthy group through good medical care. So....

Orrrrrr.....eating better and getting exercise. I eat like a pig.....but I exercise to keep from getting fat. For most people....it's a choice. Easier for some than others....and certainly a LOT harder for me than it used to.....I have a 400lb brother. Knees shot, can't move......they won't do knee work on him because he won't lose weight. He could still swim...but doesn't want to.

You can try to live as healthy as possible, but that doesn't mean you won't get sick or need massive medical intervention! There's genes, there's accidents, there's just terrible luck.

You are correct. People do things all the time to harm their health. For example, athletes tear up knees, ruin shoulders, and and fall off bicycles. But, I think for most people, getting sick is not a choice, it just happens. And accidents can happen to to the most health conscious of us. My good friend died of lung cancer. He never smoked, nor worked with asbestos, or did any of the things that are supposed to cause the disease. It just got him. Very sad.
