Vital to start exercising before it is too late

The National, Monday 25th March 2013

 I REFER to your editorial “Healthy lifestyle is best medicine” (March 20). 

Many Papua New Gui­neans, especially those in the urban areas, are be­coming “softies” compared to those in the ru­ral areas.

It is common to see people driving or jumping on a bus or taxi instead of walking 2km or less.

Walking is a good form of exercise but many people have stopped doing it.

As a result, many of us are suffering and dying from lifestyle diseases.

We need to start exercising before it is too late.
