And afterward receive me to glory.
Whom have I in heaven but You?
And besides You, I desire nothing on earth.

For, behold, those who are far from You will perish;
You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to You.
But as for me, the nearness of God is my good;
I have made the Lord GOD my refuge,
That I may tell of all Your works.”

On the contrary, there is no disease whose primary cause is better known, so that today ignorance is no longer an excuse for avoiding measures for prevention.
