Income

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, social and economic status may be the most important determinants of health—that is, the most important factor that contributes to (or takes away from) your health. Your economic situation may have a greater impact on your health than your social environment, physical environment, or even genetics. No one single factor determines your health, but they are related and they do work together.
