We’re older, richer, fatter

We're older, richer, fatter : “‘The number of people aged 65 years and over is projected to outnumber children aged 0-14 years in 2018,’ the ABS report said. ‘By 2050, 26 per cent of the population is projected to be aged 65 years and over, in comparison to 15 per cent of the population being aged 0-14 years.'”

As I said, if we are older , richer and fatter , then we need to look at healthy lifestyles for seniors and we need to look at keeping them happy and engaged because experience is irreplaceable and too many ill and unhealthy seniors will be too costly and draining. We also need to target people of all ages to keep them health conscious and we are going to have to keep on the ball in terms of keeping people focused because there are so many distractions and then multinationals set up to get the beloved dollar in their pocket.
