This program examines what people are getting sick from, dying of and how age factors into health. With so many choices today in how we live, how are those choices affecting our health? What is it that causes ill health; is it simply our lifestyle, or is it non-lifestyle factors? Will better health require or mean better lifestyles, government intervention (better environment, anti-smoking legislation, better nutrition education, health promotion generally, etc.), or more research and more medical technology? Or is it up to each person's individual will?
