Health and Healthcare
Health is the overall well-being of an individual, which includes physical, mental, and social health. The health of an individual is said to be affected due to encountering of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments. Healthcare, on the contrary, is the maintenance and improvement of an individual’s health, by means of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases, and other impairments.
Healthcare, a rapidly growing industry, is extremely rewarding for those passionate to work toward serving and improving the health of people, such as doctors, nurses, scientists, and other health practitioners. Advances in technologies in the healthcare industry are offering promising results, making healthcare among the highest-paid industries across the world. Also, the demand for professionals in all the healthcare segments is expected to increase steadily in the years to come.
The lifestyle choices people make, healthy or unhealthy, are likely to be transmitted across generations. For instance, if a child grows up in an environment where parents are often seen practicing unhealthy habits, such as eating junk food and smoking, the child is more likely to adopt the same lifestyle, which would eventually lead to illness and other health-related issues. However, a growing awareness has been witnessed among people for health-consciousness, diet-consciousness, and overall fitness, which is further expected to increase the demand for healthcare.
If you ignore the concept of a balanced diet, even a large quantity of food, won’t be enough to keep your body fit.
