how many people belive in healing the body with food and supplements instead of prescription drugs and surgery

A: It depends on what the disease/condition is. 99% of the time, if there is a prescription medication or surgical procedure for something, it''s because it can''t be controlled or fixed with diet, vitamins or exercise. If you are borderline diabetic, then diet and exercise will help a lot....but if your blood sugar is 200 and you are obese, then obviously the window for diet and exercise helping you has closed and you need medical treatment. I believe that lack of supplements and the wrong foods are what cause illness in the first place. I don''t believe in ''covering up'' an illness or pain with drugs-- I''d rather fix the problem from where it had stemmed. Best of luck in your studies, hope you change the world for the better. . Actually any health care worker can tell you that proper...

how many people are killed by alcoholism every year?

A: Answer There are no correct stats on this. Unless the person is a long-time drinker and under a doctor''s care then many people die from complications of drinking too much .... liver problems, mental degeneration, heart problems and the list goes on. If a man/woman was an alcoholic and died from a heart attack then that is what is put down on the death certificate.

I don''t mind when others smoke around me, but if there''s too many people smoking in one place (like a bar), I usually leave. The worst part is smelling my clothes when I''ve been around smokers- they smell stale, and I usually was them twice before wearing them again.drinking- I will have a drink once occasionally, but I don''t get drunk anymore.
