A cancer usually grows and resists treatment that usually causes of death. Heart failure is another example of pleural diseases that due to negligence it leads to paralysis or death.

It is your obligation to treat yourself right, because as a saying goes “selfishness or too much of something may lead to negative result.” That is why you should know how to take good care of your own body, eat the right food, live a healthy lifestyle and know your limitations to avoid fatal diseases.
