#healthy与healthful用法辨析#

1. healthy 有两个意思,一是指“人本身健康的”,二是指“有益于健康的”。如:

Good food keeps you healthy. 好的饮食使你健康。

Cycling is certainly healthier than driving. 骑车肯定比开车有利于健康。

有时用于比喻义。如:

That book is not healthy reading for children. 那本书供小孩读不健康。

2. healthful通常只表示“有益于健康的”。如:

Doing morning exercises is very healthful. 做早操对健康很有益。

Why don’t you eat such healthy [healthful] foods? 你为什么不吃那些有益于健康的食物?

此词在现代英语中用得不多(已属过时用法),一般用healthy代替。
