Obesity is now more deadly than smoking amongst Australians | Obesity to overtake smoking  in Australian Death Race | Scoop.it
Obesity has overtaken smoking as the leading cause of premature death and illness in Australia.
Nathan Farley's insight:

With obesity rates now climbing to dramatic figures in  Australia amongst adults and children, urgent actions must be taken to change our ways and turn back the clock for many desperate Australians.  As obesity related death numbers are moving ahead of smoking numbers, the media and the Australian Government must focus more on this alarming issue at hand.  It is estimated that if current trends continue, 80 percent of all Australian adults will be overweight or obese by 2020 which will be horribly hindering to our population.
