Default What is health?

We all know what health is, but have you ever wondered what WHO (world health organization) thinks about health?
Well, according to WHO the definition of "health" is "health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely absence of disease or infirmity".
Like to know your comment of the WHO definition of "health".

Many experts on health criticize the WHO definition of health saying it to be too idealistic.
