Health problems are the focus of this text for junior and senior high school students. Information about anatomy and physiology is provided only to the extent that it will enhance understandings of or solutions to health problems; however, a series of anatomical drawings is included near the center of the book for easy reference. Each chapter is organized around key ideas and concluded with a list of vocabulary terms for study, problems to solve, concept-oriented questions, enrichment activities, and further readings. Subjects covered include: (1) developing a concept of health; (2) promoting mental health; (3) growing toward maturity; (4) developing an understanding of sexuality; (5) developing sound nutritional practices; (6) promoting oral health; (7) achieving vitality for living; (8) preventing misuse of alcohol; (9) the problem of tobacco; (10) drug abuse; (11) preventing and controlling communicable diseases; (12) chronic illnesses; (13) environmental contamination; (14) living safely; (15) selecting medical products and services; (16) health careers; and (17) solving future health problems.
