Health experts are warning the current generation of Australian teenagers could be the first with a decline in life expectancy and an increase in heart disease.

The first comprehensive national study of young Australians since 1985 found a quarter are overweight or obese.

Run by the Cancer Council and Heart Foundation, the study of more than 12,000 teenagers also found 85 per cent of respondents are not doing enough exercise.

The survey questioned teenagers at 237 different Australian schools about their diet and exercise habits.

It's not surprising that the current generation of teenagers in Western nations would have the life expectancy of a second-world or even a third-world nation, thanks to fatty foods laced with synthetic chemicals.

Chips with canola oil, soda, hormone-laced meat etc., are part of the problem.

Lack of physical exercise and an unhealthy diet is the core of the problem.

What do you think?
