Health ,[object Object],[object Object]
Perspectives on Health Perspectives on Health What causes heart disease?  A simple question? Well, if you ask the same question to three different health professionals, you may get three different answers. Ask a  cardiologist  and she/he may tell you that: "Heart disease is caused by hypertension, family history, and a build-up of arterial plaque.” On the other hand, if you ask a public health nurse, nutritionist or fitness instructor, he/she may tell you that: "Heart disease is caused by smoking, physical inactivity, excess alcohol consumption and a high fat diet.” But, on the other hand, if you ask a social worker, social epidemiologist or anti-poverty activist, you may get the following answer: "Heart disease is caused by stress, poverty, unemployment and social isolation.”
Focus of each perspective ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
