Also - I saw a news article about nurses saying that overweight people should be given lottery tickets to stay off junk food. They also suggest gym memberships and cheap subscriptions to slimming clubs or even cash bonuses for being healthy.
Perhaps making it easier for people to lose weight (joining gyms and slimming clubs) are a good idea, but cash incentives are effectively bribes and I'm not sure how sustainable this is. How can this healthy behaviour be continually funded and would we be motivating people to be healthy for the wrong reasons?
