Let’s have a look of how modern technology has changed our lives.

Modern technology has changed medicine and nowadays many illnesses are curable whereas 100 years ago they were a cause of death. 100 years ago, it was a cause of death shortly after being diagnosed, whereas nowadays it’s just a chronic illness.

Still serious, but it’s just a chronic illness, we can resist this for many years. Also vaccinations saved millions of peoples’ lives around the world. And also technical achievements in medicine make possible to diagnose, for example, cancer in early stages and that gives a bigger chance to have a treatment at right time in early stages and to be cured.

But modern technology has changed our lifestyle forever and there are not really good sides of this. For example, we are moving less than many years ago. We spend a lot of time in front of computers or in front of the television and we are less moving in our work so it doesn’t help to keep our bodies fit and healthy.

Because of the achievements of modern technology we have much more free time than ever before and it depends on us what are we going to with this free time. We can choose to go to gym or the park or we can choose to go out for weekends and just trek or walk in the mountains or we can spend the free time in front of television or in front of our computers.
