Unnecessary Diseases on the Rise in Queensland (Australia)

The Health of Queenslanders report, 2006, presents a grim fact. Diseases like diabetes, heart conditions,// kidney problems, stroke, etc. are peaking. The worst part is that fifty per cent of these diseases are avoidable.

Health minister Stephen Robertson says that lifestyle diseases can be avoided by quitting wrong habits like smoking, drinking excessively, eating bad food, and not exercising enough.

“Unless Queenslanders make informed choices about their lifestyles now, a lot more of us will face hospitalisation and premature death as a result of chronic disease such as heart, respiratory and kidney disease, stroke and diabetes”,he says.

The report further reveals the dismal state of health affairs .

Population of alcohol drinkers were the third largest in the continent, fifty cases of diabetes were added daily, average vegetable consumption was very poor and the number of patients suffering from melanoma was the highest.

This is in addition to an incresase in sexual diseases, mental diseases like depression and anxiety as well as other ailments like asthma.

“Preventable deaths and illnesses are already putting an enormous and unnecessary burden on our hospital system," says Queensland Health's Chief Health Officer, Jeannette Young.

It seems indeed a poor state of affairs for the State.
