I've met many people who suffer with physical affliction without having done anything that I can see to cause the illness. The easiest example to consider is a child with cystic fibrosis or with sickle cell disease. These illnesses represent suffering not caused by the suffering one's behavior. But when considering preventable suffering, there's a common attitude that the very healthy share: this body deserves direct time and attention.

Most people, even with recent research urging otherwise, will either ignore regular exercise, or consider sufficient the minimal activity of their job- they either don't invest any time in caring for their body's health or they do not invest attention directly toward caring for the body.

It's as if the grass deserves their direct attention but their body must benefit as a side effect of caring for something or someone else.
