Sick of the whole apple a day thing? Keep Hygeia around, and you'll be all set. She's the goddess of health and everyone wants her around. Sure Hygeia can be a little OCD at times—she covers everything she sees in hand sanitizer—but it's kind of her job. The word "hygiene" actually comes from her name (aha!). So remember: if you want to have Hygeia in your life, eat a balanced diet, get some exercise, wash your hands, and read up on this kooky goddess.
