What is the difference between being ‘healthy’ and ‘disease-free’?
A person is said to be healthy when:
- All the organs and systems of the body are intact and working well.
- One is mentally balanced, free from anxieties and tensions.
- One is socially well-adjusted in the family, friends and society.
- Whereas being ‘disease-free’ means absence of any body discomfort. Thus, being healthy is not just freedom from disease.
