Why is public healthcare in the United States so poor? The simple definition of health is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Why does healthcare exist? It exists to help people maintain their optimal health as well as to help extend the longevity of their lives.

Even with the public health that North Americans have at their availability we still have lower life expectancy than other developed countries. Part of it is many Americans who have health care insurance do not even use it and they also have extremely poor lifestyle choices.

Why is public healthcare in the United State so poor?

Good health depends on so many distinct factors. One of the factors is genetics another is environmental. When it comes to genetics some of us have been blessed with the genetic library. Meaning with parents that are not thin, smart, tall, attractive, healthy, minimal risks for fatal/chronic diseases.

And some of us have not been given the genetic library and can obtain the opposite which is genes from our parents that are at a substantial risk for obesity or elevated risk for cancer, diabetes, heart disease, etc. Genetic really does play a key factor in your overall health.

But we are not bound by our genetics, and we can still do something about it like living a healthy lifestyle, exercising regularly, and eating the right healthy foods. So that we have a lower risk of attaining any chronic health disease. Your genetics and what you inherited does not define you your lifestyle does.

We hear that access to health insurance coverage affects our health. But the environment you live in plays a huge part such as your income status, your economic living conditions. And the level of education you have, your employment status and the socioeconomic status of where you live.

According to some studies the higher the socioeconomic status the more likely they will enjoy good health because they can afford a great healthcare. It is sad the amount of money you have will dictate how healthy you can be.

Cultural issues can also impact your health good or bad. Depending on how your respective customs responds to any health issue you may have. Genetics, environmental, cultural play a significant part in good health. And once you understand that you can try to make sure you are not a victim or a statistic of bad health.

The Bottom Line is private insurance should be cost effective for every American. Your income status should never dictate your ability to afford medical care.
