The government has it wrong on alcohol's role in chronic diseases (Aus) | Life style diseases | Scoop.it

By Robin Room: The Commonwealth government looks set to lose its top position in preventative health measures. Despite its world-first efforts on tobacco control, when the government next steps onto the world stage, it will be not be as a leader – its position on alcohol is out of step with the World Health Organization and contrary to evidence.

" this article tells us that different people think that obesity is a lifestyle and not a disease when what it is, is a lifestyle disease that you can maybe help"

Basically this article is arguing whether obesity is a disease or not. The dictionary describes a disease is a part of the body impairs normal functioning and usually appears with symptoms. So some people argue that obesity is a state of people not a disease. Like light- skined people tend to have skin cancer but that doesn't mean they are diseased. 

 

This article presents a very interesting point as it argues obesity is not a disease. However, people have obesity do tend to have diabetes and all other diseases. So whether or not obesity is a disease, it does increase the chance of getting other diseases.

Being one of the biggest issues in Australia and America obesity is a rising problem that people need to be aware of. This article debates whether its a lifestyle or and disease which would be interesting to readers of today.
