The definition of word "health":
+9 rate 1. freedom from disease; wellness; well-being (physical or mental); toast to wish for the well-being of a person
+3 rate 2. National Institutes of Health
+2 rate 3. good for physical and mental well-being; that maintains good physical and mental well-being
+2 rate 4. public health
+2 rate 5. Aviation Equipment status
+1 rate 6. Extent of continuing physical, emotional, mental and social ability to cope with one's environment. Good health is harder to define than bad health (which can be equated with presence of disease) because it must convey a more positive concept than mere absence of disease and there is a variable area between health and disease. A person may be in good physical condition but have a cold or be mentally ill. Someone may appear healthy but have a serious condition (e.g., cancer) that is detectable only by physical examination or diagnostic tests or not even by these.
+1 rate 7. health insurance
+1 rate 8. health maintenance organization
+1 rate 9. National Health Service
+1 rate 10. World Health Organization;
+1 rate 11. in human beings, the extent of an individual's continuing physical, emotional, mental and social ability to cope with his environment. This definition, just one of many that are possible, has its drawbacks. The rather fragile individual who stays well within the ordinary environment of his or her existence may succumb to a heart attack from heavy shovelling after a snowstorm or a sea-level dweller may move to a new home in the mountains, where the atmosphere has a lower content of oxygen and suffer from shortness of breath and anemia until his red blood cell count adjusts itself to the altitude. Thus, even by this definition, the conception of good health must involve some allowance for change in the environment. Bad health can be defined as the presence of disease, good health as its absenceparticularly the absence of continuing disease, because the person afflicted with a sudden attack of seasickness, for example, may not be thought of as having lost his good health as a result of such a mishap. Actually, there is a wide variable area between health and disease. Only a few examples are necessary to illustrate the point: It is physiologically normal for an individual, 15 to 20 minutes after eating a meal, to have a high blood sugar content. If, however, the sugar content remains elevated two hours later, this condition is abnormal and may be indicative of disease A healthy individual may have developed an allergy, perhaps during early childhood, to a single specific substance. If he never again comes in contact with the antigen that causes the allergy, all other factors remaining normal, he will remain in that state of health. Should he, however, come in contact with that allergen, even 20 or 30 years later, he may suffer anything from a mild allergic reactiona simple rashto severe anaphylactic shock, coma or even death, depending upon the circumstances. Thus it can be seen that, unlike disease, which is frequently recognizable, tangible and rather easily defined, health is a somewhat nebulous condition and somewhat difficult to define. Moreover, physical condition and health are not synonymous terms. A seven-foot-tall basketball player may be in excellent physical condition (although outside the range of normality for height) but may or may not be in good healthdepending, for example, on whether or not he has fallen victim to an attack of influenza. There are further problems in settling upon a definition of human health. A person may be physically strong, resistant to infection, able to cope with physical hardship and other features of his physical environment and still be considered unhealthy if his mental state, as measured by his behaviour, is deemed unsound. What is mental health? Some say that a person is mentally healthy if he is able to function reasonably well. Others hold that a person is healthy mentally if his behaviour is like that of a majority of his fellows. In the face of this confusion, it is most useful, perhaps, to define health, good or bad, in terms that can be measured, can be interpreted with respect to the ability of the individual at the time of measurement to function in a normal manner and with respect to the likelihood of imminent disease. These measurements can be found in tables of reference values printed in textbooks of clinical medicine, diagnosis and other references of this type. When an individual is given a health examination, the examination is likely to include a series of tests. Some of these tests are more descriptive than quantitative and can indicate the presence of disease in a seemingly healthy person. Such tests include the electrocardiogram to detect some kinds of heart disease; electromyogram for primary muscle disorders; liver and gall bladder function tests and X-ray techniques for determining disease or malfunction of internal organs. Other tests give numerical results (or results that can be assigned numerical valuessuch as photometric colour determinations) that can be interpreted by the examiner. These are physical and chemical tests, including blood, urine and spinal-fluid analyses. The results of the tests are compared with the reference values and the physician receives clues as to the health of his patient and, if the values are abnormal, for the methods of improving his health. A major difficulty in the interpretation of test results is that of biological variability. Almost without exception these reference values for variables are means or adjusted means of large group measurements. For these values to have significance, they must be considered as lying somewhere near the centre point of a 95 percent rangei.e., the so-called ordinary range or, with reservations, the range from normal to the upper and lower borderline limits. Thus, the 2.5 percent below the lower limit and the 2.5 percent above the upper limit of the 95 percent range are considered areas of abnormality or, perhaps, illness. Some areas have wide 95 percent rangesblood pressure, for example, may vary considerably throughout the day (e.g., during exercise, fright or anger) and remain within its range of normality. Other values have ranges so narrow that they are termed physiological constants. An individual's body temperature, for example, rarely varies (when taken at the same anatomical site) by more than a degree (from time of rising until bedtime) without being indicative of infection or other illness.
rate 12. Insurance plans that include coverage for medical care, dental care, and vision care.
rate 13. n the condition of the body and the degree to which it is free from illness, or the state of being well You must look after your health. How's your health these days?

(figurative) The health (= condition) of the economy is still causing great concern. In Britain, a health authority is an organization that is responsible for hospitals and medical services in a particular area. A health centre is a building in which several doctors have offices and where people go to visit them. A health farm/ (US usually) health spa is a place where you go for a holiday and eat healthy food, take exercise, etc. Health food is food that is believed to be good for you because it does not contain chemicals or much sugar or fat. Compare junk food at junk (R U B B I S H) . Health insurance is an arrangement with a special company to which you pay money in exchange for that company paying most or all of your medical expenses. (US) A health maintenance organization (H M O) is an organization which people join so that they can obtain health care. It serves a particular area, offers the service of a limited number of doctors and is paid for by its members or their employers.

New studies point to evidence that these healing properties have a scientific basis. While all tea is healthy to drink, Green tea contains the highest level of polyphenols (flavonoids), which are known for their antioxidant activity. Consumption of tea is being studied for its reported benefits on: Enhancing immune function Lowering LDL cholesterol levels Increasing HDL cholesterol levels Reducing blood pressure Thinning the blood Reducing the risk of a heart attack Lowering the risk of stroke Reducing the risk of cancer Boosting longevity Aiding digestion Preventing dental cavities and gingivitis Much of the focus of modern research is on the effects of three ingredients found in tea: Antioxidants (polyphenols), nutrients, and caffeine.
