Freedom from disease

Why do Christian Scientists regard disease as unreal?

A correspondent for the New York Herald interviewed Mary Baker Eddy at her home in Concord, New Hampshire, in 1901 and asked this question: " 'Do you reject utterly the bacteria theory of the propagation of disease?' " Her reply was: " 'Oh,' with a prolonged inflection, 'entirely. If I harbored that idea about a disease, I should think myself in danger of catching it.'" The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 344.
