For a while now I have been thinking of health behaviors as a marker for an individuals outlook on life. If their view of life is short term with limited opportunities than they will exhibit more risky behaviors if they view life as longer with more opportunities than they will take better care of themselves. I know this is nowhere near a complete answer but I think it might help with these types of discussions. It helps me to look beyond health behaviors as ends in themselves. But even this perspective will still lead to some multi-factorial approach to the problem.
