A campaign to encourage middle aged people to exercise more and eat healthily so that they don't become ill in their older years, has been launched by Public Health England. "We get bombarded by messages and sometimes it's really hard to make sense of all the messages we're getting, and off course the evidence is changing everyday, so it's very important to update the key messages and the evidence so people really understand the relationship between these risks" said Professor Kevin Fenton National Director of Health and Wellbeing at Public Health England.
