ABSTRACT Health promotion’s promise is enormous, but its potential is, as yet, unmatched by accomplishment. Life expectancy increases track more closely with economic prosperity and sanitary engineering than with strictly medical advances. Notable achievements in the past century–the decreased incidences of epidemic infections, dental caries, and stomach cancer–are owed to virologists, dentists, and (probably) refrigeration […]

Most often such biases involve comparative life expectancy, potential genetic change […]
