It seems counterintuitive. That in a country as rich as ours, and with a world-class health system, 50 per cent of Australians now live with chronic disease.

Now, it’s easy to think this is a failure of individual will power, on a macro scale, but consider this.

If I had a class of 30 students and one was getting poor grades, it would make sense to look to that individual for their reasons for falling behind.

But if half the child’s class was failing, we wouldn’t hesitate to look at the classroom, the curriculum or the wider environment.

It would seem totally illogical to point the finger at half the class, individually.

When it comes to our personal health, the cards are stacked against us in Australia.

At almost every point throughout our day, things make it harder for us to be healthy — and easier for us to increase our disease risk.

The good news is there are things we can each do to rebalance the deck of cards for us and our communities.

The power of digital marketing

From the moment we wake up and turn to our screens, we’re being harvested for data.
