It was said that “Health is the key to all happiness”. But now, the ratio of public health is decreasing day-by-day. Some people believe that an increased number of sports facility will help to improve public health, on the other hand, others think that it wouldn’t have a significant effect on public health and some other measures are required. 

Increasing sports facilities like outdoor sports will help everyone to improve their health. Finding an open space or a playground has become rare in a city because of population growth, and industrialization. As a result, peoples don’t have any chance to play any kind of outdoor games. Having a playground in the neighbourhood will be very beneficial in case of increasing public health. 

On the other hand, only increasing the sports facilities will not going to help if we don’t control our diet. Health experts believe that “good health of individuals depends about 75 per cent on a healthy diet and the rest 25 on exercises”. But, in today’s world, the fast-food consumption rate is relatively getting higher day-day-day. As a result, increased sports facilities are not effecting significantly on public health. Also, there are many people who love to play mobile and computer games rather than outdoor games.

To conclude, I believe only increasing the sports facilities will not going to help if the peoples are not concerned about their health. So we should make people conscious about their health, encourage them to have a healthy diet and limit the time of playing video games.

  1. The viewers hold different attitudes toward the issue. Some urge that the most sufficient way to refine the levels of public health is the enlargement of the various sport features. Whereas others claim that such measures are not effective and another solution should be represented.
    As far as I’m concerned, with the remarkable improvement of people’s living standards, the health issue is of crucial importance. Analyzing opinion about the increasing of sport facilities, the main arguments that would be put forward is that sometimes people do not have an access to the gym, for instance. In such case, certainly, more places for exercises should be aviable. However, it does not gaurantee the full involving of people into the sport life. One more aspect that has aruosed wide public concern is the fact, that suburban areas are in lack of easy accessible hospitals. Obviously,the resolving of this problem can lead to the higher levels of people’s health. However, the improving of the infrastructure is efficient to some extent only.
    What other measures are required? Well, As it has been mentioned before, the publicity has to be attracted to do sports. The encouraging of people can significantly change human’s mind. Such practice includes advertisements that reveal the importance of our health or even courses to provide the knowledge about the healthcare. In fact, modern problems need modern desicions. Such popular platforms as Instagram and Youtube has already been succeed in promoting the idea of healthy lifestyle.
    In conclusion, I insist that the most optimal way to improve public health is by combining the developing of the infrastructure and encouraging people to follow healthy lifestyle
