1. Subhealth

Subhealth(亚健康) is a state between good health and illnesses. It does not involve organ dysfunction(机能障碍) but implies gradual bodily deterioration(恶化) (which is often referred to as “the third state” or “gray state”). Subhealth is closely linked to your physical well-being, psychological state, as well as imbalances in social relationships and environment-related health problems. People with subhealth often suffer from fatigue, neck/back aches, stress overload, excessive anxiety, sleeping disorders and addictive habits. The most severe cases may even exhibit suicidal tendencies(自杀倾向) or anti-social(反社会) behavior. Subhealth induces negative emotions, reduces vigor, weakens your immune system(免疫系统), and jeopardizes(危害) your personal health. Employees suffering from subhealth often cost enterprises and institutions quality of work, operational efficiency and positive work attitude. This may in turn cause damage to customer relationship and corporate image, and as importantly, the latent medical cost may be considerable.


Text A

Subhealth victims are abundant in developed and highly competitive societies, and the number of affected people is rapidly increasing. A recent survey by the World Health Organization (WHO) indicated that 75% of the world's urban population are suffering from subhealth. SUBHEALTH and AIDS are ranked as the two most threatening health risks of the 21st century, according to WHO. Findings by China Health Care Science Technology Society, which covered 16 Chinese provinces/cities with a population of over 1 million, showed similar trends. In the study, Beijing, Shanghai and Guangdong reported significantly higher number of subhealth residents, representing 75.31%, 73.49% and 73.41% respectively of the cities' population. In May 2005, the Third International Conference on Health Preservation also found only 15% of the mainland Chinese measuring up to the WHO health standards, and about 85% of the national population suffered from subhealth!


Text A

Incidents of subhealth are most prominent among the intellectuals and business executives, affecting more than 70% of the group. Subhealth syndrome(征兆) also appears in over half of the white-collar professionals engaged in highly competitive fields (such as information technology, banking and finance, accountancy, retailing, advertisement, and media), as well as in data processing, sales and R&D jobs. In addition, over half of the middle age group suffers from subhealth. Women aged between 30 and 60 are also a vulnerable(易受攻击的), especially when they reach menopausa(绝经期). Such emotional distress and physical changes may cause subhealth. These statistics point to white collar workers being possibly the most vulnerable group subjected to subhealth threat. Hence, proactive measures should be taken to prevent subhealth.

2. Nine Major Risks of Subhealth

Our self-administered SubHealth Quotient (SHQ) instrument measures the extent to which the respondents are affected by the following nine categories of risks:

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

CFS is a long-term fatigue status which is caused by many sources, including ambiguous pathological causes. The main symptoms may include physical exhaustion (which cannot be alleviated simply by resting), Cachexia, limb aches, and deteriorating memory.


Text A

Dietetic Disorder

Undesirable dietetic habits, such as dietetic immoderation and intake of unhealthy food items, may cause an inadequate supply of the necessary daily nutritional intake. These can lead to the aging of your body cells, malfunctioning of your immune system, gastrointestinal problems and other repercussions.

Muscular Dysfunction

Excessive repetitive use of the muscles may cause wrist injury to the user. In addition, sitting for long hours or improper postures can lead to spinal problems, which can cause other health-related issues such as back/neck aches, stiffness of waist and leg, numbness in the limbs, and maybe even paralysis.


Text A

Sleeping Disturbance

This refers to abnormality in sleeping patterns in both quality and quantity, such as hypersomnia (excessive sleepiness) or sleeping insufficiency. Sleeping disturbance is medically classified into three types: sleep abnormity; sleep-related problems (including sleepwalking, sleeping lightly, nightmare or snoring), and insomnia. Insomnia and sleeping insufficiency are the most common symptoms of sleeping disturbance. If untreated, it can severely endanger your physical and psychological health.

Emotional Disturbance

Emotional disturbance is caused by a myriad of factors. It poses a significant risk to one's psychological well-being. A person suffering from emotional disturbance is often irritable, stressful, pessimistic, anxious, tense and experiences uncontrollable emotions.


Text A

Social Relationship Imbalance

Social support reduces the negative emotions resulting from stress, diminishes the adverse effect of pressure on health and provides avenues to alleviate stress. Research has indicated that social support can mitigate the negative emotional feeling and other psychological impact on individuals. Social relationship imbalance can make it difficult for a person to bear the pressure alone, causing emotional or social relationship problems which can subsequently lead to subhealth.

Stress Overload

We often experience tension and depression, which can adversely affect our physical, psychological, and social well-beings. Prolonged periods of stress can weaken our immune system, which may result in constipation or diarrhea, insomnia, lassitude, headache, poor memory, short attention span, shortness of breath, obesity or rapid loss of body weight, muscular tension, depression, anxiety and increased sensitivity to pain.


Text A


Karoshi is a severe subhealth status caused by several factors like extended period of overtime work, excessively high work intensity and psychological overload. The accumulation of these inducements may lead to other more severe latent diseases which may even cause death, if no proper treatment is given timely.

Sick Building Syndrome (SBS)

Environmental factors (like indoor pollution, poor air circulation, improper indoor temperature, humidity, lighting or sound) may cause health damage to occupants of the building. These may in turn cause a series of uncomfortable symptoms such as sensitive nose, pharynx or throat, headache, fatigue, hypersomnia and asthma.

Writing Tips



3.没有偿还日期的借条,开头需加上“I.O.U.”(I.O.U.也可写成IOU,是I owe you(我欠你)的缩写形式)或“Borrowed from…”,写明何人、何物和所借数量。定期偿还的借据(Promissory Note),要将偿还日期写清楚,末尾即款项后往往加上“for value received”字样。

4.收条的写法与借据大致相同。不必写抬头,可直接写明收到的具体内容,开头常以“Received from…”或“Received of…”引导。



Borrowed from Mrs. Smith five thousand U.S. dollars (U.S. $5000) only, within two years from this date with annual interest at three percent (3%).
