2016年6月4日托福独立写作范文：The most important thing for government to improve health care is to clean the environment. (16.06.04)
As economy advances, the consequences caused by industrial development become starker and various environmental problems cover the whole world. Then comes one of the most serious issues that people’s health is confronted with huge challenges. Surely, a number of solutions have been raised and discussed and as for whether the most important thing for the government to improve health care is to clean the energy, I cast doubt on it.
Undeniably, cleaning the environment is an effective way to ensure people’s health. For instance, if the air pollution can be bridled, there will be fewer chances for citizens living in Beijing or TianJin suffering the respiratory diseases. Besides, citizens in Flint City could drink clean water if the water source was not acidified to erode the pipeline of tap water. However, the threats human beings are faced with do not only come from the environmental problems and the government has to lay more emphasis on the other two areas.
For one thing, the outbreak of viruses that could sparkle off widespread epidemics is a killer to human beings. Reflecting history can help us explore how the devastating viruses tortured human beings and the death toll was astounding. For instance, the once spread of cholera once caused the death of more than a million civilians in Russia and malaria is a kind of serious malady that could cause the death of several hundred thousand in Africa in the past. The good news is those viruses were under control finally after the efforts made by numerous medical experts. However, in recent years, people are still under huge threats of many newly found viruses like Ebola, Zika that still remain highly dangerous and could trigger huge damage to people’s physical health. Even worse, a reported man in America was found dying of Zika virus. Therefore, it is more urgent and indispensable for the government to invest to the development of medical technology.
For another thing, while analyzing the influence factors leading to the sub-health of most city employees, the deficiency in engaging sports can be found as one of the primary contributors. Therefore, there is necessity for the government to build more available sporting facilities nearby the communities for city workers who have to be fully involved in their career and cannot vacate enough time to either go to Gym or farther places for exercises. Take friends around me as an example. Most of them cannot afford to spend time in playing sports, one of who called Jason working as a software engineer can only get off work till 10 o’clock PM. Another friend of mine has to travel across the country for business trips several times a month. The combination of long-term involvement in career and no chance to work out lead to the obesity and the declining immunity. However, if there is a public Gym constructed around my friends’ residency, the possibilities of doing exercises could be higher and the physical conditions could be better. Accordingly, to maintain the physical health of citizens, it is more practical for the government to invest more to the construction of sports infrastructure as far as my friends are concerned.
In a word, even though cleaning environment means a lot to the citizens’ health care, developing medical technology and building sporting facilities can be more related to our health.
With the gradually raised awareness of health, how to improve health care has become anissue of public concern and interest. Many scientists and environmentalists have fully realizedthe negative impact of environmental deterioration on the public health and propose thatthe most important thing for government to improve health care is to clean the environment. However, in my eyes, the above viewpoint has oversimplified the complicated situation.
Indeed, a clean environment plays an important role in improving health care, becausevarious environmental pollutions have posed a threat to the public health. To illustrate, thehaze occurring in large cities of China has made thousands of people fall victims to respiratorydiseases. However, it is a piece of overemphasis to claim that cleaning the environment is themost important way for government to improve health care, because there are other two wayswhich are equally important.
First of all, developing medical technology is another effective way to improve health care. Given the indisputable fact that there remain many incurable diseases such as cancer andAIDS across the globe, the appropriate technology of treatment and therapy is in great need. As a result, government is supposed to assume the responsibility of making progress inmedical techniques, for the sake of curing the serious diseases and thus prolonging the lifeexpectancy. The elemination of SARS in the year of 2003 can be a good case in point. Upon theoutbreak of SARS, most cities and provinces in China are affected. Immediately, thegovernment not only assembled a group of medical professionals and excellent experts, butalso allocated massive investment in the medical research for vaccine. Unexpectedly, theemergency was perfectly addressed and the same is true of curing other diseases.
Besides that, government should place emphasis on improving the sports infrastructure. As is common sense, governmental support for public sports facilities can create a place for theaverage people to work out regularly. Obviously, the more exercise people engage in, thestronger their immune system will become. The sound immune system can serve as a shieldto resist various diseases, which finally lead to the better health of the public. Take my ownexperience as an example. In my community, the sports facilities contain nothing but a trackin disrepair and a swing for kids. In this case, the residents have nowhere to do sports eventhough they may be willing to. However, if the local government could invest a sum of moneyto build new playgrounds and establish Pingpang tables, I bet lots of people will becomeinterested in exercising, thus becoming more physically healthy.
Fatoring what has been discussed above in, we can draw the conclusion that it is anexaggeration to say that the most important thing for government to improve health care is toclean the environment. I firmly recommend that government should attach equalimportance to the above three measures in order to improve health care.
