England Calls for a National "Health Reform" to Keep Society in Shape
Concerns over the way English citizens are neglecting personal health, the local government has rallied schools, communities, and the food and drink industry to push for a healthier lifestyle among members of society in an effort to combat various ph
Queensland (I-Newswire) December 12, 2012 - Recent studies over the years by health experts in England have shown that the nation has an increasing rate of several major health issues that permeate people of all ages such as smoking, drinking, and obesity. This alarming situation has prompted the English government to take immediate action by urging its citizens to embrace a healthier lifestyle to prevent dangerous risks to their personal health. Ministers are also considering implementing national health projects to further underscore their goals in making the country be in tune with taking better steps to fight health problems; examples of such actions would include bike training in schools and urging food manufacturers to decrease the salt, sugar, and fat content in their products.
A proposed budget has already been discussed by councils to get this health program underway, which will enable to local government to tackle health issues affecting the poorest areas, as well as particular regions in the nation where various health problems are more prevalent. Quiet communities are also being encouraged to gravitate towards a more healthy diet by having local food shops and markets prominently feature more fruits, vegetables, and leaner cuts of meat. Many officials from public and private sectors are supportive of this cause, with experts such as Professor Lindsey Davies of the UK Faculty of Public Health commenting: "This is a tremendous opportunity to put health at the heart of public service." She has, however, added that this kind of movement would need a lot of work to have its aims achieved, and that the next few years will be "critical" to see whether any significant changes in England's overall health reports have taken effect.
Ultimately, the government feels that there is only so much that they can do in order for their goals to be realized as the citizens themselves at grassroots level should be the catalyst for the health reform to become successful. Resistance has been met by some English residents, particularly in schools where children are eschewing a revamped lunch menu consisting of healthier food options and opting to scarf down junk food that their own parents have packed for them. Time and again, health experts have agreed that key habits such as regular exercise, a well-balanced diet, and avoidance or moderation of vices are instrumental in living a better and longer life. Though there is some skepticism from critics about the plans due to the stubborn attitudes of many people entrenched in an unhealthy lifestyle, the government stands firm by their decision and hopes that health will become a priority for everyone in the long run.
