Health

Health refers to a person’s condition where he/she is known to be free of any physical and/or mental illness, pain or injury. The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in 1946 as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. On this site, we extend its meaning to include the fact that other facets of a personality like appearance, fitness levels, confidence, happiness, sex, relationships also contribute to the health of a person.
