Why is it becoming almost impossible to be healthy in Australia


This seems counterintuitive. That in a country as wealthy as ours and with a world-class health system, 50 per cent of Australians are now living with a chronic illness.

It’s easy to think that this is a failure of individual willpower on a macro scale, but consider this.

If I had a class of 30 students and one was getting bad grades, it would be reasonable to look to that person for reasons for his or her falling behind.

But if half the child wasn’t doing well, we wouldn’t hesitate to look at the classroom, the curriculum, or the environment as a whole.

It would seem completely illogical to point the finger at half the class individually.

When it comes to our personal health, the cards are stacked against us in Australia.

Almost every moment of our day makes it harder for us to be healthy—and easier for us to increase our risk of disease.

The good news is that there are things each of us can do to balance the deck for ourselves and our communities.
