Should the public pay for the health conditions which are largely caused by poor health habits of a individual?Created by:
Stroke, MI, Ischemic heart disease…Chronic disease are the rising bane of our modern society. While a small percentage of these conditions can be attributed hereditary or probabilistic elements. Some of the chronic diseases have a large lifestyle component to it which can often easily be controlled by an individual.
Given that a person actions has led to a certain disease condition and a person has knowingly not changed his/her lifestyle, do you think it is fair for the public to fund for their treatment? Do you agree with the tax on the healthy to fund the sick? What is the difference between this and an example of a person who becomes poor because of his/her sloth during his youth?
