Summary
"Unequal Health asks why some individuals are living longer and enjoying better health than others. By considering popular beliefs about the relevance of such factors as sex, race, poverty, and health habits. Grace Budrys moves beyond factors that receive a great deal of media attention - such as smoking, diet, exercise, and even genetic inheritance - and examines those factors that are far more difficult to identify and track, such as relative income and relative social status."--Jacket
