Synopsis

DURATION: 80 MINUTES

CRACKED investigates the scientific links between our lifestyle choices and our physical and mental health.

We’re all trying to do the best we can in today’s busy world, but sometimes we come to rely on unhealthy crutches to get us through our days. We drink caffeine in the morning to wake up and alcohol in the evening to wind down. Sugary treats are an afternoon staple, TV binge sessions are far more appealing than moving our bodies, and meditation is just another item on the never-ending to-do list.

Slowly our health dwindles and our lack of vitality becomes our new normal. Many people go on like this for years, or even decades, even in the face of life-limiting disease.

So why do we struggle to give up unhealthy foods and habits even when we know they're probably killing us?

Issue Summary

A short summary of the issue the documentary is addressing

Dietary risks have now surpassed smoking as the leading factor for global disease burden. We must do more to reduce the number of people who are being admitted to hospital for conditions that could have been avoided.
Chronic disease can lead to many people living with illness, pain and restrictions in activity over many years, and can reduce a person’s ability to engage in work and in the community.
Most young people aren’t thinking about dementia, heart disease and diabetes. “That will never happen to me,” they say. But what we do now in our 20s and 30s can have a big impact on our health in our later years.
Let’s help young people to understand why they shouldn’t wait for a health crisis before they choose to overhaul their health. The time to start is now!
