Bauman's study of health states that health is linked to feeling well, symptom presence of absence, performance; it also individually subjective when it comes to health and age.

Blaxter's study asks think of someone who is well, how old are they, what makes you call them healthy, what is it like when you are healthy; health is absence of illness, reserve, behaviour, vitality, psychosocial wellbeing, function- is all relative.

WHO: Health is complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
