    repeating words

    Social welfare should no longer be considered within the spectrum of people merely having enough to live on but rather within the spectrum of understanding the importance of the quality of life and individual health.

    Is this sentence OK as it is

    or do i need to do something about the repeated words?

    If so, what would be a good way to rephrase it?

    Many thanks

    Re: repeating words

    Is this sentence OK as it is? Yes, though I'd probably use 'field' rather than 'spectrum'.

    or do i I need to do something about the repeated words? You can if you wish.

    If so, what would be a good way to rephrase it? Social welfare should no longer be considered within the spectrum of people merely having enough to live on but rather within that of understanding the importance of the quality of life and individual health.
