A Modal answer with band 7+
Well! amid this pandemic, these days many articles publishing on the web and in newspapers for people's well being and safety. However, today I would like to talk about an article about heart diseases prevention because this is very useful for everyone to be aware of such information. The article entails detailed information about Does and Don't in order to prevent heart diseases.
I have been to a clinic for a regular body checkup last month and there were many other people. My queue number was too far and I had to wait for an hour for my turn. So to pass the time, I picked up a magazine and started to read. The very first article was about how to prevent heart diseases. It was explaining about what diet we should prefer and what bodyweight must be maintained as per the age range. It also had research statistics data to make it simple for understanding which activities avoid heart diseases and contribute to them.
Actually, the headline grabs my attention and that is the reason I choose to read this column. Nowadays we can see many people dying from heart attacks and I thought reading this article would be beneficial. "Prevention for any disease is always better than cure", thinking about this proverb, I couldn't resist reading the article.
For me, any healthy tips are useful for everyone. The research statistics data added more interest as we can understand the real facts from it. Moreover, the writer also mentioned the effects of each activity with its pros and cons. This is fascinating when we read something that benefits us in some way. I always spread information about this article with the community, family and friends so that others could also take advantage.
Speaking Part 3 Discussion
Do you think people are healthier now than in the past?
No, I don't think nowadays people are healthier than a few decades before. Let me give you an example. I have seen many people are still living even after their 100-120 years. However, there are the majority of people dying after 50-60 years due to various diseases such as Cancer, Heart diseases, others. I believe in past food quality was organic and healthier, but now food quality is degraded because of modifications in the raw food harvesting methods.

I have also seen people prefer individual sports like Running, Gym, Cycling, Snowboarding, you name it. Old aged people mainly do Yoga, Walking which does not require lots of energy.

Usually, schools have extracurricular activities to keep students mentally and physically fit. These activities entail Dance, Karate, Physical Education, Running. They also held the annual sports competitions Running for various lengths, Football, and other group games. School also awards to students who do well at competitions to encourage pupils. What else, they also support students to participate in inter-school sports games.
What can governments do to improve people’s health?
Government plays important role in improving people's health. First, they can encourage people to do more sports games to keep healthy and open sports complexes in every city. They can spread awareness of how much it is helpful of doing exercise. Also, states should update the medical equipment at the government hospitals so that the public can be benefited. Also, many rural areas do not have clinics and they need to travel far to receive better treatment, governments should help to facilitate the medical care centre at remote places.
