Quick question. I believe someone on here posted a quote along the lines of 'A man will consider himself in good health despite insomnia, migraine etc' basically pointing out that our definition of health is very poor.

Anyone know the exact quote? It's driving me mad!

Oh that's a good one! But no, the one I had in mind listed off a list of illness that we all take for granted in modern life like headaches, sinistis, migraines, insomnia etc.

I think this is the one you mean:

The average citizen regards himself as healthy so long as the little discomforts he shrugs off as "inevitable" do not incapacitate him for work or for enjoying a televised fight. Public acceptance of well-being means suffering with no more than a touch of sinus, bursitis, neuritis, indigestion, heartburn gas, constipation, athlete's foot, poor eyesight, dry hair, brittle finger nails, fatigue, frequent colds, corns, assorted allergies, decayed teeth, blotchy skin, obesity, irritation, and occasional insomnia.
