ways of stating healthy


Senior Member
Please help me.
Would anyone please help me understand "ways of stating healthy" in the following context? This text is excerpted from Digital Sociology which is edited by Kate Orton-Johnson and Nick Prior, chapter 14: E-Health and Renewed Sociological Approaches to Health and Illness

Interpreted in the context of the new consumerist culture in healthcare, information practices can be seen as a fundamental resource for promoting better health (Shilling, 2002) and active information seeking (on the Internet or via other sources) as indicative of individuals’ awareness of personal responsibility. Conversely, online health information seeking might be viewed as an obligation for individuals: by enabling individuals to make choices about health and ways of stating healthy, keeping
informed becomes the ‘norm of conduct’ (Rose, 2000).

Thanks in advance.
