Time for us to think healthy

Pilbara News - - News - Abbey Pot­ter

Chuck­ing another chiko on the bar­bie (Pil­bara News, 8/11) may sound like a great idea, but there is noth­ing heroic or healthy about it.

Sta­tis­tics show that two in every three Aus­tralian adults are over­weight or obese, which leads to heart dis­ease, can­cer, type 2 di­a­betes and a pre­ma­ture death.

We need to stop nor­mal­is­ing and glo­ri­fy­ing this un­healthy “blokey” be­hav­iour. Why not whip up your health­i­est bar­be­cue cre­ation for din­ner tonight and spread the word via #BBQ­for­life.
