    I wonder what you’re talking about?

    Modern medicines?!?

    Well, even before modern medicines were discovered/invented…people were healing themselves with natural herbs. Nature, that has given us life, has made provisions for nurturing it!

    There’s a whole wealth of knowledge in Ayurveda…that dates back way to ancient times! Even surgeries were performed back then!

    If the world were to suddenly lose all knowledge of medical science/medicines…our life-span would get shortened. Most elderly people are pulling along on the strength of various medicines…

    In ancient times, before medicines, average lifespans ranged from late teens to mid-20’s. Of course there was a lot of factors responsible for that, like war, starvation, no hygiene, being killed by predators, being killed by exposure, being killed by a simple wound that gets infected, etc. But no doubt, a lack of medicines was also a big contributor.

    It’s essential because we love our nonexistent physical body, rather control and treat ourself through meditation. To consider the causes of demanding medicine is the effects of attaching materials and living an unbalance life.

    If medicine did not exist, the more people will died. if the more people died, the less the budget cut on students will be. it’s not my idea, it’s Ethical egoism.
