  • How wealth affects health?
    • Smoking
    • Diet
      • Wealthy people would afford healthy food e.g. fruit and vegetables tend to be more expensive than junk food such as crisps. parents of wealthy family are more likely to influence their children to eat food which is without sugar and maintains their health (fitness)
    • Medical Care
    • Housing
      • Wealthy people can afford good housing (means  they can afford to have- heater) and stay warm in cold times of the year. Whereas, working class might not afford their own house, which means they have to keep on changing their house, and they have to suit to the environment that is constantly changing.
    • Life expectancy
      • Related to health mainly, however, if we don't have enough money to cure our diseases and effect of food supply on mortality. Higher income also implies better access to housing, education, health services and other items which tend to lead to improved health, lower rates of mortality and higher life expectancy.
    • locality
      • Wealthy people are less likely to move about from where they are living, whereas, working class people are more likely to move around and sometimes live in this area and than change it to another area.

    • Fitness
      • Wealthy parents are more likely to afford GYM and teach their children more about being fit and the consequence of not being fit; because they are more likely to have time to spend with their children rather than thinking about food and money. on the other hand, working class people have to think about what they are going to do to get money rather than spending their time with their children.
