  People - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A people is a group of individuals who belong to and function within a particular society.
However, when used to refer to a group of humans possessing a common ethnic, cultural or national unitary characteristic or identity, "people" is a singular noun, and as such takes an "s" in the plural; (example: "the English-speaking peoples of the world").
Central issues of interest to people are the understanding of the human condition and the meaning of life, and survival.

 Famous People In Alternative Med... Encyclopedia Article @ NaturalResearch.org (Natural Research)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Many people, including conventional and alternative medical practitioners, contend that this funding has led to corruption of the scientific process for approval of drug usage, and that ghostwritten work has appeared in major peer-reviewed medical journals.
Alternative medicine critics agree with its proponents that people should be free to choose whatever method of healthcare they want, but stipulate that people must be informed as to the safety and efficacy of whatever method they choose.
People who choose alternative medicine may think they are choosing a safe, effective medicine, while they may only be getting quack remedies.

People of minority races or cultures probably were more comfortable under the Roman Empire than they were before or after.

Even if they were freed, people who had once been enslaved still didn't have the same rights as other people, but their children did, if they had been born free.

 Greek People - History for Kids!
One important way is to divide people from animals: the Greeks said that people were different from animals because animals ate their food raw, and people ate theirs cooked (that is, people know how to use fire).
Another way of looking at these divisions is to divide Greek people from barbarians, people who are not Greek.
But certainly there were slaves and free people in all the Greek city-states, and the Greeks felt that the difference was an important one.
