Katy Watson in Tonga explores why life in a Pacific paradise isn’t without its hardships. She hears why a policy of importation has contributed to the highest rates of obesity in the world, and soaring rates of Type 2 diabetes. Also, why fishermen have struggled to stay afloat financially, and how many young Tongans struggle to find work in the tiny island Kingdom which spans hundreds of miles of Pacific Ocean. Plus, why rates of domestic violence against women have some Tongans very worried. (Photo: A vegetable stall in a Tongan market)
