What determines our health behavior?

Behavioral Health: From Morality to Biology offers an interdisciplinary exploration of how health behavior is variously determined by morality, environment and society, psychology, economy, biology, or by two or more of these factors in combination. Taking a unique, inquiry-based approach to the subject, the book introduces readers to key ideas about the roots of both individual behavioral disorders and population-level behavioral health issues. The first course book to examine the vital subject of behavioral health through an historical lens, the book addresses undergraduate and premedical students, medical students, and students in other health professions and meets the growing demand for educational resources that bridge the health sciences and humanities.
