Civics

In this chapter, you have read that health is a wider concept than illness. Look at this quote from the Constitution and explain the terms 'living standard' and 'public health' in your own words.


SOLUTION
An important part of the Constitution says it is the "duty of the state to raise the level of nutrition and the standard of living and to improve public health."
Living standard means the level of living of people at which they live. If they live in hygienic conditions enjoying all the comforts of life, it means their living standard is high. On the contrary, if they are bound to live in filthy surroundings and drink polluted water and eat unhygienic foods, it means they lead a low standard of living. Public health refers to the health of the general public.
