Sociologists agree that alcohol consumption, smoking, diet, and exercise are important issues, but they also see the importance of analyzing the cultural factors that affect these patterns. Using a narrative case study-based framework, Cadge pays particular attention to hospital chaplains and nurses, the work they do, and the evolution of their professions. The significant variance in focus has led some to believe that medical sociology should be considered a loosely connected group of disciplines instead of a single unified field.

Severe cases may end in death. Drawn largely from the author's experience in teaching student nurses, it is focused on the needs of these students. The current volume consists of two chapters, one on the Vitamins A and Carotene, and one on Ascorbic Acid.

Conclusion Praise for second edition: Kevin White guides us through the many reasons for the centrality of health showing clearly that health and illness are the products not just of our biology but of the society into which we are born. The significant variance in focus has led some to believe that medical sociology should be considered a loosely connected group of disciplines instead of a single unified field. Although a small book, this covers several sociological aspects in the care of the patient and was prepared for use in teaching students of the health professions. This is ethnographic research at its best. Healthcare facilities are largely owned and operated by the private sector.
