Obesity in Australia speech

Extracts from this document...


I can almost be certain that no - one in this room would disagree with this statement, Although small country compared to places such as North America, and Europe we have a great way of life, we are a democratic nation, live in the 21st century and pose some of the most amazing natural attractions the world has ever seen such as; Uluru, the Great Barrier Reef, and all of the National Parks and bushes. This epidemic that is gripping our nation and at the moment is having huge affects on the way we live our lives and how we are modeling the future for the younger generations. The problem I am talking about is Obesity. I am sure you?ve all seen programs such as The Biggest Loser, Overhaul, and You Are What You Eat. ...read more.

Well hello wake up Australia do something while you still can. I can not think of one reason why we shouldn?t have compulsory sport in schools. If we didn?t can you imagine what would happen? Many kids would not play sport; they have no motivation to do sport. Just think to yourself if you were in this boat?.Chat on MSN, play some sport. This is the same as saying, give my fingers a bit of exercise, or give my whole body a bit of exercise, we need sport in schools to keep everyone healthy no matter if they do sport outside of school or not. http://www.theage.com.au/lifestyle/diet-and-fitness/australia-pips-us-as-worlds-fattest-nation-20090407-9xne.html ...read more.
