In Australia, as in the rest of the developed world, we face a chronic oversupply of unhealthy and addictive food. This has become so ubiquitous that even some medical training has become skewed to view ill-health from dietary causes as normal. Prof Bruce Neal relates how we arrived at this situation, and the opportunities to change it.
- Understand the burden of disease caused by improper diet in Australia
- Identify the current challenges to dietary improvement across industry, government and public health
- Realise how healthcare providers can educate individual patients on food health, as well as influence regulatory and industry decisions
- Assess the current regulatory framework in terms of assistance in making dietary decisions
