Health and Lifestyles.
What fosters a healthy lifestyle? How much responsibility does the individual have for his or her own health? Which is the more significant: the social circumstances in which people live, or lifestyle habits such as exercise and smoking? This book purports to contribute important new wvidence to the current debate about the health of the British population. Based on a national survey of 9,000 people which was carried out by an interdisciplinary team at the University of Cambridge Medical School, this work investigates issues such as measured fitness, declared health, psychological status, life circumstances, and health-related behavior, attitudes and beliefs.
