Giftbox.pngSummary

Health is a state of physical, mental, and social well-being. It involves more than just the absence of disease. Society as a whole benefits from people's good health just as individuals do. The World Health Organization (WHO), an agency of the United Nations, works to promote better health throughout the world. Hygiene is a set of practices performed for the preservation of health. Hygiene is an old concept related to medicine, as well as to personal and professional care practices related to most aspects of living. In medicine and in home (domestic) and everyday life settings, hygiene practices are employed as preventative measures to reduce the incidence and spreading of disease. Hygiene is also the name of a branch of science that deals with the promotion and preservation of health, also called hygienic. To achieve and maintain good health, people must have basic knowledge about the human body and how it functions. Only then can they determine what will or will not help or damage their health. Therefore, learning about health should be a part of every person's education. Current knowledge about health, together with good living habits, can help almost everyone maintain good health and improve their quality of life.
