What Determines Health

Health is continually subjected to such internal and external challenges as varying external temperatures, bacteria, viruses, and stress. The various systems within the body must constantly adjust to these changing conditions.

The habits and behaviors established within a family group can have a great effect on an individual's health. Good health habits are usually begun in the family. A child who is brought up in a family that practices healthful behaviors is more likely to continue the regimen as an adult.

Some health-influencing factors can be controlled, such as eating habits and environment. Others are not controllable, such as age and heredity. Among the many factors that can affect the health status of the individual are physical activities, nutrition, safety, smoking behavior, stress adaptation, and personal health practices. Many healthy people remain healthy by practicing behaviors that maintain or improve their health status. 


There are a number of ways to determine health. Certain aspects of health can be measured. For example, a person having normal body temperature, pulse and breathing rates, blood pressure, height, weight, vision, hearing, and other normal measurable characteristics might be called healthy. Other factors that play a part in the individual's overall well-being, such as personal values, life-style choices, and beliefs, are more difficult to measure. However, they still play a vital role in a person's overall health status.
