There are interesting discussions whether countries should spend more money in education to prevent some disease or in treatment of these. It has been a large issue around the world, and now it is essential to evaluate this point deeply before offering an opinion n order to achieve a clear idea about it.
Some problems such as childhood obesity, high insulin levels and heart illness have become in global epidemic which affect people lifestyle; consequently their work productivity tend to decrease and government need to spend bigger amount of money in people health improvements.
Moreover, the largest percentage of these problems are related to basic elements in people daily life like high levels intake of fat and sugar, poor physical exercises and low fruit and vegetable consumption with tend to deteriorate people’ bodies.
From my point of view, government main aim should be reach better living conditions for their people; that is why, they must look for teaching them better habit to encourage people to find a live with more healthy opportunities than they have at the moment. Furthermore, it is cheaper to invest in education programs than treatment for sick people.
In conclusion, leaders ought focus on helping people to aware about better routines brings long-term benefits to them, because more healthy people are less expensive and more productive for a nation; what is more, it is a good way to have high standard of living in both personal and global situation with a stronger workforce and more happy people.
