Health Literacy

Learn how to take care of your own health. Everything else doesn't matter that much if you are not alive, if your brain is not working, if you can't move.

Read everything you can, continually improve the quality of the sources you look to for education. Get to the point where you feel more comfortable taking care of your own health than going to a doctor.

It's is easy to come up with examples where it seems that you have to put your faith into doctors hands, but even here, knowing your body and how to take care of it in depth before an emergency situation will leave you much better off. For May 17 Money Bomb!
