your say

Conversation starter Top marks for an excellent health and nutrition magazine. I always enjoy reading about the latest nutrition research, and especially appreciate articles on how food and mood are linked — it’s so fascinating. My copy of HFG always gets shared around at work, which leads to lots of interesting chats with colleagues in the office at lunchtime. Angela Walker, VIC Staying connected When New Zealand stopped publishing its own HFG magazine, I was devastated, and wondered how I’d access well-researched, proven health advice and recipes. Fortunately, Australia came to the rescue and I can now access your version.

One in three Aussies have high blood pressure, and eating less salt would save thousands of lives and millions spent in healthcare costs every year. Reducing your salt intake is easy: eat fresh meals made with whole grains, veg and heart-healthy protein, like legumes and seafood, and flavour them with herbs, spices, citrus and garlic. Avoid store-bought sauces and dressings, and packaged, processed foods, such as chips, as these have large amounts of added salt. Advances in Nutrition 31% That’s the number of Aussies who are living with obesity. While there’s no substitute for eating…

Thinking of getting a pet? Then you’ll enjoy the well-documented benefits, such as lower blood pressure and cholesterol, less GP visits, increased physical activity and a greater sense of social connectedness. During Covid, new pet ownership and adoption surged as people working from home sought out companionship to feel less lonely. A new study found Aussies were the leaders in Google search trends for dog and cat adoptions at the peak of the pandemic. Interest in cat adoption remains high, which might indicate that cats are better suited to separation, now that owners have returned to office-based work.…
