Why do astronaut have to be healthy before going into flight?

Because in space flight, and especially in extended space flight, astronauts do not enjoy the benefits of the force of gravity. The gravity on earth provides resistance to movement, thereby continuously maintaining muscle health and strength. Without this benefit, astronauts' bodies can become weakened quite rapidly; therefore they undergo strenuous diet & exercise both prior to and during manned space flight missions.
