According to Hardman and Stensel (2009), the ancient Greek physicians successfully established the tradition of maintaining positive health of a regimen that involves exercise and correct eating. Contrary to the modern world, people are using technology rather than eating healthy and taking part in physical activity. However, a few people work in places that involve little exercise. The responsibility of living a healthy lifestyle and encouraging others to do so should not only be done by concerned individuals, but the government as well (c3 collaborating for health, 2011).

In his annual report the American Institute for Cancer Research (2009) noted that alcohol is responsible for 100 thousand deaths per year. The main causes are cancer, high blood pressure, suicides or homicides. World Health Organization (1998) studied that people who practice good health habits are expected to live 10 to 12 years longer than those who abuse alcohol, cigarettes or drugs.
