Accidents and Injuries
|The inevitable wear and tear
Accidents and injuries are the inevitable wear and tear of living. They range from minor cuts and bruises to life-threatening falls and burns. They could happen anywhere, in the work place, during sports and exercise, when out for a walk, or even in a carpeted and well-padded home. How well and quickly you recover, depends on the state of your health, to a large extent on your nutrition, and on the gravity of the injuries.
Injuries and age
Injuries tend to become more serious with advancing age, because virtually all our biological and biochemical functions slow down with age. We do not see and hear with the same clarity. We can no longer mend our bones, heal our wounds, replace our skin with the same ease as in youth. We do not absorb nutrients from our foods as well as we did before, and so on. As you would expect, all these affect our bodily functions, and especially our immune system and our capacity to heal ourselves.
