I think health is the absence of illness and illness is some sort of sickness that you can overcome. When coming up with these definitions I used my personal experience and the things I have went through in life.
When I saw menstruation in the video I was kind of shocked because I never looked at it as an illness I always thought that it was a natural thing that all women had to go through once they reached a certain age. I have always known it as a normal thing that happens when a woman does not become pregnant so the inside of her uterus sheds its lining.
I would consider cancer as an illness because it takes over a persons body and if that person’s body can not overcome it they can die from this illness. I have witnessed multiple family members as well as friends die from this illness. I personally believe the chemotherapy hinders the body instead of help the body. This illness is one that scares me once someone has it because I know how this process goes. I believe Cancer and Menstruation are two totally different things and I honestly don’t believe Menstruation is an illness but it is a natural thing that all women must experience.
