"Knowing which factors determine the health of a population is essential to confront these causal determinants, define priorities and develop strategies that effectively reduce the immense burden of disease that currently weighs on humanity. A substantial fraction of that burden is perfectly preventable and should not have to occur"

Martínez-González MA, from the book Public Health Concepts and Preventive Strategies. A guide for health sciences.
