Live For Good Health
By Paul Hegarty
No matter how much strength may be possessed one always desires more. It is like money. You can never secure enough. No matter your desires or ambitions; no matter what your occupation, health is an actual necessity in order to accomplish anything in life.
From as far back as history dates the tendency of humanity to worship strength is noted. This inclination has not decreased to any extent even today. We all love and admire strength. Our heroes are all strong. We like to imagine them with all the vigor and beauty of body which every perfect human being should possess.
The normal condition of every human body is one of strength. Every infant which has vitality enough to be born and live has sufficient vitality to grow into a vigorous man or woman. Where it is otherwise, that weakness and disease have been caused by unnatural conditions. In most cases weakness is brought about by failing to observe the laws of nature, which demand the use of every part of the muscular organism, and a regular supply of nourishing foods.
Though the building of any great degree of strength is impossible without using it regularly as acquired, the influence of diet is very great. It requires but little intelligence for one to understand how greatly foods can influence the condition of the body. In order to build strength you must have strengthening and nourishing foods, and these foods must be eaten as nature demands; otherwise there is little possibility of one gaining the desired physical power and beauty.
Some "Eat to live"; others "Live to eat," but if you so live then the highest and most intense enjoyment can be secured from superb health which at times thrills every nerve with surplus power which will be your ever-present possession.
