Health and Wellness High Among People in Major Australian Cities

People residing in important Australian cities are healthy and manage their weight well. They are also emotionally healthy, according to a survey that found their country counterparts to be obese and anxious.

A survey of 50,000 Australians found that people have cut down on their smoking and are consuming less alcohol. But the number of people who are anxious has gone up by 1.3 million.

The wellness index revealed that Western Brisbane is by far the healthiest in 57 areas. The people in major cities were found to be very healthy whereas those in country areas were not as much.

"Compared with 2007, the overall health of Australians is down just slightly," says Michele Levine, CEO of Roy Morgan Research, which teamed up with Alere healthcare company to establish the Alere Wellness Index.

"I think people in Western Brisbane are more likely to be aware of their health and be involved in their health than people who have concerns about jobs and money," Dr Green, a GP in Brisbane said.

"When other things are looked after, then you can concentrate more on your health."
