Obviously the first question that pops into your mind is: “Why do Australians need to live a healthy lifestyle?”
We have one of the longest life expectancy rates in the world. You could be born in 2012 and expect to live up to about 85 years old and 65 of those years without any disabilities.
We have access to one of the best health care systems in the world that provides advanced detection, diagnosis and treatment techniques. This is why when it comes to quality of life, Australia is the envy of the world.
While we expect to live longer and have access to excellent health care it doesn’t necessarily mean that Australians are healthy. We could all be healthier. Gone are the days when acute illnesses were the leading cause of death. Nowadays, the leading causes of death are chronic conditions that are lifestyle-related.
Systemic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, pulmonary diseases, and diabetes can be avoided or managed by living a healthy lifestyle, which generally involves regular exercise and a balanced, healthy diet.
