Health & Disease
Luratians live longer than the people of Earth. We are naturally more healthy because
- genetic screening measures have reduced the incidence of inherited disease
- our respiration and heartbeat are slower
- we are less prone to stress because our neurological function is more stable and social peace and equality are slowly pervading our world
Even in the less developed nations of our world, we do not suffer from diseases associated with hypertension or stress in the way that Earth people do.
We are not disease-free, but through genetic manipulation and parental licensure, we have conquered most diseases rather successfully. Lifespans in most countries have improved significantly. The Continent and the nations of Wershonia have the most advanced medical technology in the world and as such they are the most healthy people on all Luratia.
