Vital Signs: The Deadly Costs of Health Inequality

by Lee Humber - £17.99  Pluto Press (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745338323 | ISBN 10: 0745338321

As standards of healthcare decline, so do our bodies; we need a radical vision for healthcare.
 
Nature is no longer the leading cause of death; society is. This makes health care one of the most important political issues today. This book looks at the reasons behind the declining condition of our bodies, as governments across the world choose to neglect the health of the majority of their citizens.
 
Using hard data taken from service users, Lee Humber constructs a sharp analysis that gets to the heart of inequality in health care today, showing that 'wealthy means healthy'. Life expectancy for many in the UK and US is worse than it was 100 years ago, and more and more communities across the world can expect shorter and less healthy lives than their parents.
 
Humber also suggests radical strategies for tackling this degenerative situation, providing a compelling vision for how we can shape our health and that of future generations.
