Although the “Healthy People 2020” 2020 National Health Objectives are just a call to action, it is still a great opportunity to reflect on and discuss what it all means.
The 2020 objectives are all very similar. They cover a lot of the same topics, but each includes a specific call to action. For instance, the most important one is to reduce the number of people dying from preventable causes. We’ve heard a lot of talk about how we do this already, but it’s also something that needs to be done.
The problems are that the Healthy People 2020 2020 national objectives are extremely vague (they basically just talk about what they want to do). To make it more concrete, we can consider the following: The objective of a healthy person (or people) to eat a healthy diet, to maintain a healthy body, to lead a healthy lifestyle (such as physical activity), to be physically robust, to have a healthy weight, and to have a healthy blood pressure level.
The problem here is that we don’t have a good way of measuring health. To see if something is healthy, we can check the average or the peak heart rate. But there has to be a better way to measure health. When it comes to health, you can’t just measure it once and leave it at that. You have to keep track of the health progress of each person, each region, and each government. This requires a better way of measuring these things.
The one area to which I’d like to see the public be more conscious of is that the government has their own body parts. They have their own internal organs, and their own genes. The problem is that people are unaware of this, and the government has their own body parts. A person’s body parts are different from each other.
The government needs to be more aware of the public’s genetic makeup so that they can help each person become healthier. This would really help in the areas of prevention and early intervention. A healthy lifestyle should be encouraged, and the government should help educate the public on how to become healthier. A healthy environment would also help prevent diseases.
I don’t say this to make fun of people, but the government could just as easily be doing this to the public. They could be creating a government “body part” on a computer and keeping tabs on what each person is doing. They could also be doing this to people with eating disorders. It’s a great problem to have.
The only problem: how do you get people to be healthy? What are people supposed to do to become healthier? This is a problem that we face in the United States, and a simple solution could be a national campaign to get people to eat fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, the government currently has very little money to spend on this sort of thing, and this sort of campaign is only going to make people want to go on the diet more.
You can read the whole thing here. In short, you know all the foods you’re supposed to eat, but not the ones you should eat. It’s all about balance.
The way I see it, the more we spend on these sorts of health campaigns, the easier it will be to get people to eat the right foods. However, it is not always about making this easy. There is a reason we call these things “healthy”. The foods that you are supposed to eat can be so many different things, it’s hard to pick one.
