The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) has released a report, which revealed that a decline has been seen in the smoking rates. But, a generous amount of increase has been found in obesity rates.
A lot many factors were being compared and on the basis of the same, the report has been prepared. Some of the factors, which were being considered, were obesity, physical inactivity, smoking and alcohol consumption.
After comparing all the factors, it was revealed that risk factors are high for diseases like cardiovascular disease, kidney problems and diabetes. Lynelle Moon, who is the Spokesperson of AIHW, was of the view that the report will help them to take precautionary measures.
As said, a significant rise has been seen in the obesity rate. Obesity rate has been among all age groups, said Moon. "Additionally, between 1989-90 and 2007-08 the proportion of adults who were physically inactive remained high at over 50 per cent for all age groups", asserted Moon.
On the other hand, good news is that there is a decline in the rate of smokers. People have been urged to lead an active lifestyle and remain fit.
