  • Marxist approaches to health and medicine The N.......... helps to keep the work force fit, and this caring face of c.................. conceals the e........................ of the working class by the owning class. D................... are agents of social control- gate keepers who control access to the s....... role and therefore keep the workforce at work in the interest of capitalists. The definition of health and the provision of health care are concerned with protecting the interests of the d.................... class in an unequal capitalist society. M................. is mainly concerned with providing capitalists with a h....................... work force. The medical model of health suggests i..... -health is caused by either r............... attacks of disease or the failure of individuals to follow a healthy lifestyle. This puts the blame on i.................. when poor health is really caused by s.............. influences in an unequal society, such as low pay, u............................ and poverty, unhealthy food, environmental p..................... and hazardous work places. The state doesn’t tackle the real social causes of poor health, and allows c........................ to continue making profits out of health d..................... products, like t.................., alcohol and junk food. The focus on medical t...................... , rather than the p...................... of ill health, supports big businesses in the form of d............... and medical technology companies. These companies are mainly concerned with making p............ of ill health, not reducing it. Marxists like N................ (1976) adopt a s.................. model of health, and are very c.................... of the biomedical model.
