Waiting for minimum critic reviews


How can America become a healthy nation, Blank asks, when it is beset by poverty, illiteracy, and crime? No new health care system can succeed unless or until the links between social problems and sickness are understood-and addressed. On the national level, Blank calls for a more aggressive redistribution of social and public health resources to the poor and elderly; at the same time, he describes sanctions that would encourage individuals to be more careful about their own health, and limit or change destructive behavior.
