HOW THIS IS DIFFERENT
What do we mean by it?
Australia’s growing obesity epidemic
Facts of the matter
Why we shouldn't blame people.
Obesity is not just a lifestyle choice or due to a lack of willpower or self-control. Just blaming individuals and calling for greater personal responsibility will not work and has not worked in the past.
The alarming new study shows there are 900,000 more people living with obesity today, compared with just 3 years ago. If the current growth rate continues, within 10-years, 4 in 10 Australian adults will be living with obesity.
