Health, according to the World Health Organization, is "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity". A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep, and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in a high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still, other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.
Healthy refers to the state of being in good physical and mental condition, free from illness, injury, or disease. It also pertains to promoting good health, such as habits, activities, and environments that support overall well-being, proper function of all body systems, and a balanced mental and emotional state. Apart from this, when used to describe food or diet, 'healthy' means providing essential nutrients and energy necessary for maintaining optimal health and preventing nutrition-related diseases.
