Did you know in a typical year, each Australian on average consumes 9.7 litres of alcohol, 917 cigarettes and 9 litres of ice cream? And the average size of a pizza has increased by up to 66% over the last 20 years1?
Now on a more serious note – nearly 1 in 3 adult Australians weren’t active enough in the last week2. Almost 2 in 3 adult Australians are overweight and one in four children aged 2-17 are classified as ‘overweight’ or ‘obese’3.
Those are some eye-opening statistics.
When talking about the need to consider life insurance you have no doubt heard the responses ‘But it won’t happen to me’ or ‘the chances of it happening aren’t really worth the cost’. When really, sadly, chances are it might.
To help, we’re excited to share with you our new animated video, Facts of Life. We hope this will help you to know the facts.
