(1) First, medical care is expensive. The insurance to guarantee medical care is expensive. Social class opens and closes the doors to medical care by making insurance either affordable or provided as a part of employment.
(2) Second, lifestyles are shaped by social class. Generally speaking, the higher one's social class, the healthier one’s lifestyle. People in the lower social classes are more likely to smoke, eat foods with high fat content, be overweight, abuse drugs and alcohol, avoid exercise, and practice unsafe sex. People in the upper classes are more "body conscious," want to make good impressions in social settings, and enjoy the benefits their wealth has provided.
(3) Third, life is harder on the poor, more stressful, provides fewer alternatives to solve problems, and creates greater wear and tear on their bodies.
