Is medication the only way to lower disease rates?

I recently read a quote in a New York Times article that caught my attention and helped me validate what I already knew:

MANY Americans assume that the chemicals in their shampoos, detergents and other consumer products have been thoroughly tested and proved to be safe…industrial chemicals do not have to be tested before they are put on the market.
