However, most people don’t pay attention to it. A person’s physical and mental health are interconnected. A negative effect results from ignoring one aspect while ignoring the other. This problem affects everyone, from the elderly to school-going children. Instead of hiding this problem, we should address it. In any case, the situation may worsen in the future.
