You cannot buy health, you can only preserve and strengthen it. More than 90% of the Belarusians that took part in a poll of the Institute of Social Studies of the National Academy of Sciences and Republican Center of Hygiene, Epidemiology and Public Health ticked this answer.
The huge number of Belarusians that visited the International Specialized Exhibition “Week of Fashion for Health” is good proof that the nation wishes to keep fit.
Back in 2001 only 55% of Belarusians believed it was fashionable to lead a healthy life. Five years passed, and now 89% agree that man is responsible for preserving or damaging his health. More than a half of all respondents said that started to take better care of themselves.
