How Health Becomes Wealth?

The often-quoted saying goes this way, "Education begins at home", Gil Camporazo, the school principal correlated it with "Health is wealth" as he addressed the more than three hundred pupils with their respective parents and guardians, and the teachers of his school too.

Health is wealth because of wisdom
Health should start at home. The father provides the sustenance for his family and the mother provides the vital substance for her children on the food she got and cooked. It is appropriate to say then that health begins at home. It is a common knowledge that a healthy family constitutes a healthy society, and a healthy society makes a healthy nation.

Generally, education starts at home wherein the mother becomes the first teacher of her children. The school follows that up as a formal institution of imparting knowledge to the children. This practical knowledge which the children got from their mother and the knowledge they learned and acquired from the school, had become the elements part of their wisdom. This wisdom turns into their valuable possession in life as long as they live. And when properly applied becomes their intelligence.

Therefore, health coupled with intelligence becomes wealth which nobody could take it except intolerance, irresponsibility, and personal abuse. It becomes a precious possession in life. Thus, health is wealth because of wisdom.

In like manner, Ms. Ma. Juvy Tadlan, school nutrition coordinator in her opening remarks has earlier stressed this that health is wealth. Nutrition month is always emphasizing the importance of the value of foods should every pupils eat which contributes so much to the maintenance of one's health, so that everyone stays healthy but not sickly. Health is wealth so goes this saying, Mam Tadlan concluded.
