But most people don’t have a good understanding of what it is or what causes it to occur. Many times in life, we learn so many complex things that the simple things we ought to remember from health class in high school seem like nothing more than a mystery to us.The problem is that quite often in our busy lives, we don’t recognize symptoms and problems when they start to occur.
