"What God cannot do does not exist! As hard to believe as it sounds, it is possible and believable because people born in those days were fed, bathed, and treated with local natural herbs that have little or no negative side effects, instead they repair and replenish the body. Nowadays people eat junk food, microwaved food, and use drgs plus intoxicating ones that go down Into the system that damages the body gradually. Congratulations to baba Can we say many happy returns."
