In the move from cooking to convenience food we have given up control of what we eat. As a result our food is heavy on sugar, fat and salt, and light on the nutrients our body needs. This is causing a hidden health crisis that will swamp our hospitals just when the baby boomers want their hip operations. Gareth Morgan and Geoff Simmons latest book cuts straight to the bone of what ails us, and what we can really do about it. About Health Cheque What sort of shape is our health system in? Is it the third world’s cast-off that some commentators would have us believe, or is it a model of success? Sick of hearing from disgruntled patients, media reports and self-serving politicians, I decided to carry out my own independent study of the health system to get to the bottom of it. The results surprised me. Our local health system scrubbed up surprisingly well globally, but it’s clear that there is a substantial mismatch between the public’s expectations and what the health system actually delivers. Some hard calls need to be made.
