Passage 6
The Concept of Epicureanism is largely known to us through Lucretius, rather than Epicurus. The latter, born an Athenian citizen in
Samos in 341, founded his school in his garden, a symbol of retirement from the world, in 306 and died in 270 B.C.
For the Epicurean, the universe was chaotic and anarchic, composed of atoms and the void. All knowledge was acquired by sense
perception; observation was therefore essential to understanding. There were an infinite number of worlds, formed by the chance
combination of atoms in infinite space. The gods, unconcerned about human affairs, lived in the void between the different worlds.
They were not to be regarded superstitiously or feared, only to be envied.
Man himself was made up of body and soul. Death was not to be feared. There was no such thing as immortality; after death, atoms of
the soul were scattered. The aim of life therefore was pleasure, the pursuit of which brought about happiness, the final end. The
injunction to follow nature meant, seek pleasure. Everything was desirable insofar as it led to pleasure, but above all, the aim was
absence of pain and the achievement of peace of mind. This would be obtained personally by self-control, the mastery and limitation
of desires as far as possible to those that were strictly necessary. Also, it implied limitation of social relationship – “live unknown”refusal to be involved in family or political affairs, skepticism toward religion, which the Epicureans considered largely superstition.

Passage 8
Although many quarts of blood pass through the heart each day, the heart cannot utilize the blood within itself, but rather is sustained
by branches of arteries originating externally. These coronary arteries can become blocked by the deposition of fatty material
(including cholesterol), connective tissue fibers and calcium deposited in the vessel walls. If the blockage is severe, numerous heart
muscle cells become oxygen starved and the heart stops. In less severe cases, only part of the heart muscle dies as a result of the
blockage. The dead muscle is replaced by scar tissue and the heart continues to function, though less efficiently. Diet, stress, smoking
and alcohol all contribute to the problem of heart attacks. Interestingly, although fats in the diet are often blamed for heart attacks,
about 70% of the heart’s energy requirement normally is derived from oxidation of fatty acids.

Passage 9
Cancer is a disease in which cells somehow become activated into uncontrolled multiplication and thus produce an overgrowth, or
tumor, composed of malformed, malignant cells. Cancerous tumors can occur in almost any tissue of the body, although some are
more often affected than others. Three general kinds of cancer, named after the tissues most often affected, are recognized:
carcinomas (from karkinoma, the Greek word for cancer), which commonly involve epithelial tissue (epidermis and lining
membranes); sarcomas (Greek sarkoma, “flesh”), which affect mainly connective tissues, including bone; and leukemias, which start
in the bone marrow and lymphatic tissues and spread in the blood and lymph.
