“Conocer qué factores determinan la salud de una población es imprescindible para confrontar tales determinantes causales, definir prioridades y desarrollar estrategias que reduzcan de modo eficaz la inmensa carga de enfermedad (morbilidad y mortalidad prematura) que pesa actualmente sobre la humanidad. Una sustancial fracción de esa carga es perfectamente prevenible y no tendría por qué ocurrir.” (Martínez-González MA, book "Concept of public health and preventive strategies. A manual for health sciences". Elsevier 2ªed.
