    Schools and parents should really insist in this being helthy thing,a lot of teens and childs have health disorders, they can't do it alone

    some people have medical conditions that will impact their health regardless, so you can't choose to be healthy, only healthier.

    I think that it is important to follow the advice given to us, but we also should be given guidance because that makes it easier to follow.

    I think it depends on the individual and their environment. If supported/guided while having inner motivation, one can choose to be healthy.

    The fact that you can be born unhealthy isn't something you can control but you can always influence your health

    I think that certain aspects in society can effect whether you choose to be healthy or not, for example, peer pressure and social media.

    I think the advertisement of fast, unhealthy food should be banned, like it is for cigarettes

    I think that our unhealthy society can be attributed to the fact that it is so much easier to have an unhealthy lifestyle than a healthy one

    Not every health issue is to do with factors we control.Although we can control some things.

    It's hard because life is so busy, sometimes it's just way easier and quicker to grab something unhealthy. Exercise is important though
