“Health is metabolic efficiency, sickness is metabolic deficiency” Considering this statement, the researcher can say that health is important. Catastrophes like accident is inevitable in our daily living, Emergency sickness like headache, stomachache and toothache may attack us anytime and anywhere. Thus, in every establishment, there should be a place for our health.
