Health is a condition where disease and infirmity aren’t present. A person would be considered to have good health if the following conditions are met: he/she doesn’t suffer from serious illnesses or diseases, the state of health allows him/her to carry on with daily activities without any hindrance or limitation, and the state of health is maintained by a person’s self. For some people, the state of health can also be achieved through treatment and therapy. Treatment and therapy can help improve the condition of health. In the society, the idea of health is attached closely to that of wealth; poor health leads to poverty.
It is the responsibility of all people to make sure they lead healthy lives. This doesn’t mean that they go around spending too much money on medicine or go through painful and invasive treatments, as these are not effective in the fight against illness and disease. The main article that should be understood by everyone is Occupational Safety and Health. Occupational safety and health issues must be given more importance than ever in today’s world as several workplace accidents have taken the lives of many innocent people and even killed many.
This article aims to provide an explanation of this most important article in relation to the three main definitions of good health. These three definitions are disease, infirmity and disability. Disease refers to any kind of problem, illness or disease which affects a body part. Infirmity also includes physical or mental condition which prevents a body part from working properly.
The third main article is sleep deprivation. People who don’t get enough sleep are at risk of developing numerous health problems. These health problems include but are not limited to, cardiovascular disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and arthritis. According to the article, the best way to prevent such ill effects is to take adequate sleep every night. People who get less than seven hours of sleep per night are at high risk of developing many types of heart disease, according to the article.
The fourth main article is population health. Population health refers to the overall health of a nation or population, as determined by the country’s health experts. Obviously, the people living in a particular country would have different health status as compared to those living in another country, and the ways to maintain a healthy overall population health are different as well.
It is recommended that people should try to improve their overall health status as well as lifestyle. People who eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, take their medications as well as smoke cigarettes and alcohol should develop good health status. Those with poor health status or disease should try to improve their health status through prevention or treatment. They can do so either through self-treatment or through medical intervention. However, it should be noted that all diseases and medical conditions are not curable. Prevention is always better than cure, as we all know.
