O, it sounds quite interesting! In my country few people  think enough about their health. But, to tell the truth, we haven't oppotunities to do it. It isn't easy to find natural food in our shops. Above all, ecological situation  is too bad. You see, it's hard to be healthy physically and spirituallyCool  at the same time
Be healthy, my dear))
