B) Education is important or health is important ?
Answer:
Health: Health is the level of functional or metabolic efficiency of a living being. In humans, it is the general condition of a person's mind and body, usually meaning to be free from illness, injury or pain (as in "good health" or "healthy"). The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in 1946 as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Education: Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, research, or simply through autodidacticism. Generally, it occurs through any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts.

Health is more important than education :
Health is one of those things that people tend to take for granted. Until you are facing disease or injury, your good health, like a clean house, greatly goes unnoticed. When all your body parts are working properly, there is no pain to grab your attention, no chronic illness to debilitate your daily life. Health is a state of mental and physical well-being in which everything is functioning properly and you experience a general feeling of vitality. Good health allows you to perform the tasks necessary and desirable to your daily life. Work, family, home and pastimes can be enjoyed and conducted without pain or interruption. Good health is important because it allows people to focus on their interests and obligations. Poor health, in the form of injuries, disabilities, chronic pain, mental illness or disease, prevents millions of people from supporting, caring for or expressing themselves effectively. Anyone who has lived with chronic pain can tell you how the condition clouds every aspect of your life, making even the most mundane tasks into ordeals of suffering and despair. Mental illness and addiction are just as unhealthy as any other debilitating disease. Judgment and abilities are lost, efforts wasted and relationships destroyed as the patient flounders through life, incapable of regaining that good health they thought was their birthright. For the majority of people who suffer with poor health, it is the loneliness and despair that ultimately destroy their lives. People cannot survive in isolation. Condemned to a hospital bed, a mental ward or a lonely home, unhealthy people are instinctively, albeit unfairly, shunned and ignored. Misery may love company but most of us experience a lizard-brain aversion to spending any significant amount of time in the company of the unhealthy. The loneliness and isolation contribute to the mental and physical suffering experienced by the unhealthy. On the other hand, people who are vibrantly healthy seem to attract success and respect without effort. Perhaps it is the same lizard-brain, which is constantly seeking s superior mate or partner, who fauns over and offers special treatment to the athletically fit. People who are healthy get promoted at work more readily, they are treated better socially and professionally and they tend to garner more respect. Personal Life:

The importance of health in personal life cannot be minimized. It has come to be regarded as a prerequisite for optimum socio-economic development of man. Health care as a right of every individual has been recognized in many countries. In the "Universal Declaration of the Human Rights", there are 30 articles. The Right to better living conditions and the Right to Health and Medical service are vital. Though the health is now recognized as a fundamental right of every human being, it is essentially an individual responsibility. It is the individual who has to accept certain responsibilities in order to attain good health, i.e.- responsibility about diet, personal hygiene, cultivation of healthful habits, carrying out specific...
