Health is crucial for every individual but we fail to give it the necessary attention. The health situation is being sabotaged by the consumption of oil. On average, people around the world consume 3 to 5 kgs of oil per year. In Pakistan, the oil usage is as much as 15 kgs per year. As a result, cases of heart attacks are increasing with each day. Dangerous diseases such as paralysis, obesity, high blood pressure are a direct consequence of the excessive use of oil. Around 23% of the people in Pakistan die because of such diseases. I would like to humbly request all Pakistanis to reduce their usage of oil.
