Summary - Today we discussed influences on health. We talked about how health isn't just physical health. To be a healthy person, someone needs to have not only physical health but mental and emotional and social health. We discussed some of the things that would impact the health of a person like access to technology, cultural norms, social pressures, heredity, behaviors and media etc. Some of these influences we cannot control. But regarding behaviors, we do have control over our choices for the most part. We discussed how for some people, making the choices is easier because of their situation.
