Abstract from DBPedia
    Health, according to the World Health Organization, is "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity". A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep, and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in a high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.

    健康 (けんこう、羅: salus、独: Gesundheit、英: health)とは、心身ともに健やかな状態であること。疾病の予防や健康の保持、増進などを健康管理(けんこうかんり、英: health care)といい、身体の状態のみでなく、精神の状態を表す時にも使われている。
