      Hi Cristina,

      That is a good question! I think so yes. Not only with the heart but with other diseases like cancer for example. Many times heart diseases can be prevented and that is a much better solution that trying to cure them (although we are working hard to find ways to cure people). But people don’t tend to think long term too much, we are wired to think about our instant pleasure instead of long term health.
