What is Health & Illness?
Health is a social physical or mental condition, a overall condition of the body whereas illness means the condition of being in poor. Everyone wants to be in good health, but like the saying goes, "Anything worthwhile isn't easy!" Society makes it easier & cheaper not to be healthy. Health insurance extremely expensive (especially if you have a family), healthier food is extremely expensive, & the food that is affordable can hurt you in the long run.
Health & illness go hand in hand, what's up with the 2 liter sodas' being cheaper than 16oz. sodas? What's up with juice without sugar being more expensive than a 2 liter soda? You can get a good salad for $5. and up but who can afford that every day? Most people can't afford to eat properly on a daily basis so they eat what they can afford.
If you are fortunately enough to be able to afford health insurance & you do go to the doctors', you are liable to come out with a bag of pills; one to make you do #1, one to make you do #2 , one to make you stop doing #1, one to make you stop doing #2, one to make you happy and one to make you sad to name a few. So not only are you walking out the doctors office with a bill that you have to pay partial payment for but now you have a bag of pills that you have to pay for as well.
Health & illness go hand in hand because when you go into some neighborhoods, check out the type of stores, fried foods, snacks and cigarettes, sometimes even alcoholic beverages. They will sell anything in your neighborhood to convenience you or is it really convenience? In the long run these things will make you sick!
In my conclusion, health & illness go hand in hand because in my opinion if you don't stay on top of what you eat; watch what you are putting into your bodies, no substances, exercise or staying active & get plenty of rest because your body will tell you when it has had enough you are liable to end up with some type of illness!
