    The media has greatly morphed our definition of health:

    As technology improves so does our understanding of science and of course, health. We have been able to differentiate between myths and facts. However, another side of things to consider is social activists fighting for health at every size, trying to create different health standards that contradict science. Definitions change as society changes and as research advances. Just consider all angles, hope this helps!

    Well, we no longer think that sickness is the influence of the Devil. Well at least some of us do. That's the thing about evolution it takes time for the army to catch up with the vanguard.
