Life,liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.Implied not really promised by the Nation’s founders.A publich health approach can tell us and has told us much about our living and dying.The entity called health can be and has been objectified.Its pursuit costs 1/5 to 1/4 of national budgets in industrialized countries and close to 1/3 thereof in some countries that eschew a military.It is closely linked to something more
difficultly objectified called happiness, the pursuit of which,some feel,is purely an individual matter.How much can a public health approach clarify or must we review the social contract going all the way back to the origins of homo sapiens?
