    Prevention is better

    News, Postbag, Published on 06/01/2016

But much of this needless horror is preventable. A close look at developed nations proves this. Progress in Thailand can be measured in these simple numbers. How many are dying needlessly every day due to preventable causes like dengue fever, diabetes, heart disease, pneumonia, drunk driving, speeding, failure to wear a helmet, illegal weapons, bombs, drug overdoses, and so many more? One might hope the government would try an ounce of prevention when faced with these staggering statistics if it’s goal truly is to restore happiness for the people.
