In 1984, WHO revised the definition of health and defined it as “the extent to which an individual or group is able to realize aspirations and satisfy needs and to change or cope with the environment. Health is a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living; it is a positive concept, emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities”.[14] Thus, health referred to the ability to maintain homeostasis and recover from insults.
