This is an interesting article written by Clare Bambra and published by Project Syndicate. It’s a RECOMMENDED READ, in my view. Check it out!
I am not sure that I entirely agree with the thrust of this article. Since the introduction of the National Health Service, a common standard of free healthcare is available across the population, yet the lower social classes typically have more health problems. Reasons often cited include lifestyle, diet and perhaps even laziness, preferring to rely on a diet of convenience and junk food.
Surely, individuals must help themselves, as well?
