There have been some alarming findings in this new study regarding young adults, weight and life expectancy.
Australians in their 20s and 30s classified as obese or overweight can expect to lose up to 10 years in life expectancy!
EEK. Here is how anyone can turn their health around!
Lead author Dr Thomas Lung, from The George Institute for Global Health, said, “We know that excess weight has an impact on your health, but to have excess weight as a young adult is really significant on life expectancy. We are talking about losing up to 10 years of your life.”
