When I was taking the quiz I felt really naïve because How we stand globally about life expectancy and how we still think that wealthy is healthy might not be true today. I got 5 out of 10 , there are couple of statics that amused me with how the world thinks of health. One of the facts is that we still think that wealthy people are healthy which is true but now the fitness is really important to everyone. Health and fitness features in every magazine and tv shows how to stay fit and active so I think its not all wealthy people who are healthy but class pyramid is very true for 65% of time. Another fact is that people in 20th century could live 30 years longer.
I watch the video place matters in the start of the video they talk about how a town to town the life expectancy change in America. Dr. Weiland a cardiologist who talks about when they diagnose the patient he found that the young patient didn’t smoke or done anything harmful substance that could have a bad effect on human body. Environment, living area and Income can also have an effect on health. Low Income neighborhood has lot of disadvantage like when they buy a car its was at least $500 dollar more then others expenses seen more expensive. Researcher found that disadvantages neighborhood increases in rate of devolvement of heart diseases is by 50% and when stress get chronic it leads to high blood pressure which leads to hypertension. Living in disadvantage neighborhoods also leads to violence then families start to lose their members towards gang violence which result in more stress. Children in these community also go through violence which decrease development in brain and immune activity. Place really does matter in child growth, heart diseases etc.
Non- genetic factor can be a place where you live? what kind of power plants are there? and how are your surrounding and many more. The observer look at all of these question and how are they affecting the patients lives.
