McClellandviews on Policies and Politics for People’s Health

Ahealthy person is one who is in a state of completephysical, intellectual, and social well-being according to TheWorldHealth Organization(WHO, 2005).Mac McClelland narrates the story of how schizophrenia killed hercousin. Poor conditions of asylums, closing up shelters because oflack of enough finances and lack of support from the society leads tounhealthy individuals in a community. (Newsreel, 2008). Any personwith mental illness is regarded to be sick. The state should havepolicies that favor them because most of the psychologically illpatients come from a society that misunderstands and stigmatizesthem. This concerns treating the involuntary clients instead oflocking them in jails, funding for early screening, timely treatmentfor the moderately ill people, and a rehab, for those who do not gettreatment. The policies put in place can save individuals who arepoor and cannot be able to afford treatments. A countries politicsshould not interfere with the policies set in favor for the sickpeople. They should always have the priority.

Proximalversus Distal Causes in Diabetes II

Proximalcauses are risk factors that cause a disease, such as cholesterol,lack of exercise, diet and or hypertension whereas the distal causesare the social factors that cause a disease such as socioeconomicstatus. Individuals focus more on the proximal effect of illnessesbecause it is controllable at a different level. (Newsreel, 2008). Aperson can control what they eat and how often they exercise. On thecontrary however, no individual can control how they get socialsupport. Since the 1900s the environment has changed. People havemoved from planting crops to buying processed food. This kind of foodis believed to have high Tran fats and more calories as compared tofresh vegetables from the farm. This associate with the lifestylechange canned and processed foods tend to be cheaper compared tovegetable and fruits in countries where they cannot be grown.(Youtube.com). The low-class people can only afford the junk type offood, leading to an increase in Diabetes II. More focus should be puton the distal causes since people are not aware, and they pay lessattention to them. It is no doubt that a diet rich in sugar andprocessed food causes Diabetes II because of the high calories foundin them.
