Health, as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” This definition has been subject to controversy, as it may have limited value for implementation. Health may be defined as the ability to adapt and manage physical, mental and social challenges throughout life.

Welcome. This project has the ultimate goal of helping you prevent some common diseases and maintain a healthy life. This channel’s videos also attempt to debunk some myths and spread science-based knowledge. References are displayed in the slides, so that viewers can read full texts. But no reference or video is presented just to be swallowed with bigotry. Perhaps one of the mainstays of science and reason is doubt; therefore, viewers are not expected to accept and agree with every evidence, article, or statement. The comments section is enabled, so you’re free to share your ideas and critiques. It is also good to bear in mind that the research which built the basis for these videos was limited – thus, might have ignored important information – and that science is ever-changing. As new articles are published daily, part of this content may become obsolete or incorrect. Moreover, even recent articles could have wrong conclusions, and flaws regarding methodology and data analysis. Hence, it is always better to consider many studies than to attach too much weight to just one conclusion. Epidemiological studies also have other problems: they don’t distinguish so well between causality and mere correlation, and their results cannot be perfectly extrapolated to people that did not take part in them. Differences among persons (behavioral, environmental, genetic) generate confounding variables that are sometimes ignored. Professionals and specialists can help in solving doubts and in adapting generalizations to a specific individual.
