Fijians urged to eat healthy and exercise

July 11, 2018 6:30 pm

As a country well known for sporting skills, it’s shocking that Fiji is vulnerable to diseases related to inactivity and bad eating habits.

Fiji National University’s Surgical Professor, Eddie McCaig says people should know what to eat, how to exercise and how regularly one should exercise.

“Education of our kids, education of our people and I hate to say it enforcement of getting yourself fit and losing weight and we can focus it on our arm forces and nurses”

He says healthy living needs to start from civil servants as they’re flag bearers of the nation.

McCaig says this effort needs to start now as it’s a long-term process.
