Back to basics

There are now a lot of supplements being promoted on TV, which promise to take of your eyes, your kidneys, your heart, your lungs, your joints, your liver -- you name it, they probably have it or will have it in the future.

But are they really the answer to a healthier you?

People nowadays want something easy -- pop a capsule to protect the liver and indulge in that weekly alcohol spree or inuman.

But we tend to forget the basic -- why not drink in moderation or forego the alcohol altogether? It cannot be done. Cannot? Or is the person unwilling?

Think about it. We know the basics -- eat healthy, sleep enough, don't smoke, drink in moderation, observe hygiene. Then how come we don't follow them?
