Australia's obesity crisis worsens as survey shows two out of three adults overweight or obese

Australia's obesity crisis worsens as survey shows two out of three adults overweight or obese | PDHPE Journal - Lifestyle Diseases | Scoop.it

"Two out of three Australian adults and one in four children are now overweight or obese according to the latest check up on the nation's health."

 

This report states that obesity rates have risen, comparing 2007-2008 and 2011-2012. I think that one of the most important statistics is stated in the introduction:


"Australians are giving up smoking and are drinking less but the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics Health Survey shows we’re eating more."


The Bureau of Statisitcs says that males are worse than females, with 70% of males wighing in too heavy compared to 56% of females. Not only this, many younger children are also becoming obese early in life.

giving up smoking and driking is very good but all the progress can be washed down the drain if we eat more than we should. especially if we substitute smoking and drinking with lots of fatty foods and sugary energy drinks.
