Some chronic diseases and disabilities, however, exist from birth and mean that life is only possible with the provision of the full range of care, or with one form of care throughout life (The Roeher Institute 2001). Others may become paraplegic suddenly as a result of an accident. Care throughout life, or for most of it, is not uncommon. Of the fifty-three women interviewed for a study

For manufacturers, inputs of care include expenditures on safe design and on carefully inspecting the product to screen out units likely to injure consumers. Besides taking more care, manufacturers can reduce the number of product accidents by selling fewer units of the product, be- cause total accidents equal pq. These two ways of reducing accidents (care and output) correspond to the recurrent distinction in this book between taking more care while engaged in a dangerous activity and
