Are Health Educators "Warriors Against Pleasure?"
Russell, Robert D.
Journal of School Health, v71 n8 p394-95 Oct 2001
This 1963 paper explains that physicians must help balance their patients' desire to live a pleasurable life with their desire to be healthy, noting that if they insist upon only health-promoting behaviors, their patients will view them as being "warriors against pleasure" and may not follow their advice.
