All you have to do is look at facebook posts of vacationers and you will see that many are a heart attack just waiting to happen.

“poor health” is a phrase used as a defense by service providers explained by them to the media to deter the possibility of lawsuits.

From the day we are born to the day we die we are in some form of “poor health”, just a matter of scope.
