Still lots to do if Scots want a healthy lifestyle.
A NATIONAL healthcheck has shown that Scots are still some way short of leaping to the top of any global league table.
Admittedly, we started from a pretty low level.
And there have been impressive improvements - especially in cutting harmful drinking and smoking.
But years of hammering home the healthy living message doesn't appear to be making a huge difference to the way we live.
Obesity levels have stopped going up, which is a good sign.
But 68 per cent of men and 61 per cent of women are overweight.
A quarter of adults are obese. At the same time, the proportion of people adhering to the five-a-day message has barely shifted in a decade.
It shows that without the massive drive to promote a more active, healthy lifestyle, this country would clearly be struggling.
The challenge is on to push harder still.
