Increase focus

A thing can be seen inside our present parents. They are very indifferent to their children’s physical work and field games. If they had focused on health education, they would have known that children who did manual labor or played sports could hold their attention longer. It boosts their immune system and helps in bone formation.

Regarding increasing health awareness

There are many of us who know very little about the health risks. But still don’t panic. For example, almost all smokers know that it is harmful, but they are not careful. Many people know they need to lose weight, but they don’t want to focus on it. It’s a lack of caution. Health education can gradually create awareness among these people. At some point they will become aware of their problem and come forward to solve the problem.
