Instructions: Horton (2014) proposed, “ We need to investigate factors that affect an individual’s ability to care for him /herself since often they are factors outside of the individual’s control that hinders personal health responsibility PHR’’(p.9). Resnik (2006) and Brownell et al. (2010) identified some of these factors that are outside of an individual’s PHR. Frieden (2013) explored the government’s role in protecting health and safety”      

Questions. Considering these factors that influence health, what variables are within an individual’s control, and what other entities should take responsibility for assuring the health of the individual? Give clear examples of individual and social interventions that support health.
