Health is a state of well-being for humans in which all aspects of the mind and body are in balance. It also operates and integrates all other subsystems. In other words, the human body’s physical health considers fitness relating to the body’s proper functioning. It is well-known and proven that a healthy person has a sound body and a balanced mind. Health is one of the features of life that makes people live longer.
According to the WHO, health is the absence of illness and total mental, ethical, physical, and social well-being. If a person is in good physical health, free of illnesses, but always under depression, covetousness, stress, frustration, etc., the person cannot be considered.
In the case of live skin or tissue, antiseptics are used to deter bacteria, while disinfectant sterilises surfaces, appliances, and other inanimate structures. Disinfectants are heavier and hazardous than antiseptic products; thus, they are added not to live tissues but to surfaces or non-living objects.
Concerns about the contamination and infection of fruit, food, and foodstuffs have caused antiseptic and disinfectant to be increasingly used late. The control and prevention of infections by antiseptics and disinfectants are significant. They are the basic washing and sanitation techniques acting as an aid to health, eliminating pathogens that cause surface and living tissue contamination.
Some of the commonly used antiseptics are iodoform and chloroxylenol, while sulfur dioxide and chlorine frequently use disinfectants in various industrial facilities and healthcare sectors. Phenol is used both as antiseptics and disinfectants. When the concentration is 0.2%, it is used as an antiseptic. At the same time, the 1% concentration of the same is used as a disinfectant.
