MEDICAL SCIENCE OF LIFE

Healthy life may seem to be a very simple topic. Experts and influencers are talking about it in every channel. But, is it becoming more and more inexplicable? Civilization apparently brings health problems such as obesity, three “hypers” (high blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol), diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases, etc. that make us anxious or even panic. Those illnesses reflect the necessity of maintaining a healthy life with commonsense in order to learn authentic information, eat at ease, then live in a healthy lifestyle. This course provides information based on medical science. Through those common knowledge and basic concepts related to human metabolism, students will gradually understand the relationship between daily life diet and health maintenance, then achieve the goal of being healthy. For example, students would know where the bacteria are in the living environments? Whether “you'll eat a peck of dirt before you die (不乾不淨吃了沒病)” is true or not? How to verify those health-related myths from content farms and how to find reliable information? Are annoying pimples and seemingly obscure cellulitis related to bacterial infections? Doctors who specializes in infectious disease will also give lectures, introducing topics like the meaning of fever: is that equal to getting an infection? When should I take antibiotics? Lecturers will help student build up the health knowledge. Most importantly, it is purported to provide students correct understanding of complex issues including GMO products, pesticides, and organic products. The learning scope would also extend to self-learning of diet, medicine, and preventive medicine. We welcome students who are active, curious, and longing for knowledge to develop a better lifestyle.
