Description

While people in some countries struggle to reach minimal levels of nutrition, one of the biggest health problems in countries like Australia is that of over-consumption. We consume too much energy as fat, alcohol and sugar and too much salt, yet even as we consume beyond our needs we're not eating enough complex carbohydrates and fibre. It is these trends which are causing burgeoning rates of cardiovascular diseases and cancers. In this program we look at the relationship between diet and disease, examining in detail the way foods both protect against and contribute to the most significant diseases of our age, the interaction with other health influences and the recent SIGNAL government health initiative that will shape our health for decades to come.
