Eating ourselves to death


Dr John looks at the possibility that many of us could be literally eating ourselves to death. Studies indicate that many in our generation may have a shorter life expectancy than our parents and he points the finger at our obsession with eating!

Dr John speaks with Professor Vlado Perkovic from the George Institute for Global Health about what needs to be done and who should be taking action. Professor Perkovic doesn’t shy away from the strong words and he emphasises the urgent need for change. He says the 1/4 of all Australian children are overweight and that the numbers are growing!

Listen to Professor Perkovic as he talks about the need for the introduction of improved labelling of food products so parents can make good choices for themselves and their children. Dr John talks about how many parents claim that they are too time poor to ensure that their children get 150 minutes of exercise each week.
