ESPINOSA GONZALEZ, Leticia. Changes of lifestyle; their influence on the health-disease process. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2004, vol.41, n.3, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-297X.
The quality of life depends directly on the natural environment and its quality. The assessment of health depends not only on the needs and knowledge of the individual, but also on the living and working conditions. Based precisely on the existance of determinants of the health status and on the modification they suffer due to the constant social, scientific and technical development, we propose ourselves to show the social changes of the lifestyle of the population and their relation to the health-disease process, and to prove how these changes help to promote health and to prevent diseases. The changes of the lifestyle determine changes in the conditions and quality of life of the persons and modify the health-disease process.
