Do you constantly make the excuse of, "it's too expensive to eat healthy?" I know when I was struggling financially I was living on practically nothing. I would go purchase a pack of ramen from Costco and try to live off that week to week. It was literally all I thought I had money for. I soon found on that my thought was untrue. A friend of mine who is a nutritionist told me it's very easy to eat on a dime. She led me to a few websites and gave me a couple books to look into. After several weeks of research I compiled and created recipes that are cheap in price, but generous in portion size and taste. I know there are a lot of people in the world struggling financially, and food just seems to keep increasing in price while decreasing in value.
This volume brings together key readings of significant moments in the understanding of health. It goes beyond the often superficial literature-review style of medical sociology texts. In doing so, this book presents a challenging array of classic and new material on the social basis of health, illness and healing. The reader incorporates many of the elements of the 'new' medical anthropology and sociology of health and illness. Each section of this book is introduced with an essay by the editor, providing a fresh perspective on topical issues setting out the core concerns of the authors whose work follows. In addition, the reader is supported by an extensive guide to further reading. It provides students with an introduction to the field and a critical insight into current debates.
Within contemporary society, a number of themes (globalisation, health and regulation) interlock in complex patterns, changing in response to the mix of cultural differences, regulatory preferences and available resources. To turn the kaleidoscope and to change the mix, is to change the pattern. This book is about those patterns as they arise in the contemporary legal, health and ethical context. It seeks to explore the transformations and challenges brought by technological change - both its positive and negative effects - and to consider regulatory options in the contemporary global village. This book seeks to identify the core values and concerns that inform current debates in health law and regulation. The book will not provide a recipe for new legislation but rather a vision of the concerns and values that will guide such legislation into the future.
