  3. 3. The Importance of Scoliosis <ul><ul><li>Scoliosis is a serious medical condition that should be advertised more. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If scoliosis was more publicized like other diseases such as cancer or HIV than it would reduce the amount of people who have life-threatening cases of it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>More publicity will also help the production of new and different cures to be made. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It would also limit people's ignorance and fear of the subject of scoliosis as well.  </li></ul></ul>
