Dr. W. Gifford-Jones has a philosophy of healthy living, developed early in his professional career, and this has served as the foundation for his work. He says, there are just two ingredients to living a long and healthy life:
Luck – We all must contend with the things we can’t control. A tragic accident. Cancer at an early age. The genetics and circumstances we inherit. Luck is not always fairly distributed.
Good common sense – This is in limited supply, and the extent to which one makes use of it is directly proportional to living life to the longest extent with the best possible health.
