Social Problem Versus Personal Trouble? When you think of a social problem with regard to health, what comes to mind? You may be most familiar with smoking or obesity as representing social problems with regards to health. Yet, is this a social problem, or is it the responsibility of the individual to take charge over his or her own health? Consider for example, the role of advertising for cigarettes in low-income neighborhoods. Or the concept of food deserts in low-income communities where easy access to cheap fast-food far outweighs the prevalence of healthy and nutritious food. To what degree are health and disease the responsibility of the individual or the society? Select a health issue and consider how this issue impacts health outcomes from a sociological perspective rather than an individualistic perspective. 2 pages , single spaced with references in APA format
