Abstract

The August 2013 edition of Men’s Health investigates a pressing matter: ‘Why being Indian is good for your health’. The special section opens with a bold statement:

From the spicy food on your plate and the martial blood pumping through your veins to the love lavished by your family and the benefits of advice professed by the Kamasutra – here’s why India is the only country on the planet you would want to be in right now.
