    Obesity and Healthiness / Police crackdown on jaywalking

    On Monday's Backchat, an unhealthy city. The latest large scale study by the Department of Health shows more than half of adults are overweight or obese, we don't eat enough vegetables and have too much salt. 28% have high blood pressure.  Where only a third of us drank alcohol 15 years ago, that number has rocketed to more than 60%. Are we so unhealthy, what's changing, and what can we do about it? Call us with your diagnosis and prescription on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, police crackdown on jaywalking.

    Public Open Space in Hong Kong / Electric Cars in the Budget

    ​On Wednesday's Backchat, open space. A report from Civic Exchange suggests that nearly two million of us in Hong Kong are living with less than the planning standard of two square metres per person. In cities like Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai and Singapore, residents get between 5.8 and 7.6 square metres. This is outdoor space managed for recreational purposes - mostly urban parks and sitting out areas. Is it reasonable to expect more? What are the benefits of open space? Will we get it on the Central reclamation, in West Kowloon and Kai Tak? After 9.20, electric cars and the budget.  (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email backchat@rthk.hk or text 6393 5925)
