Most of us over the age of five were brought up to believe life is very complicated and our bodies are a jumble of parts, each with a different name and a corresponding ailment; dozens of diets to overcome the effects of highly complex micro-crap called food; and television punctuated with an entire industry of false promises and dark demons hawking medicines for lesions we didn’t even know we had.
