    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.

    Judicial Review on Domestic Helpers' Live-in Rule / Reform of Medical Council

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton

    On Wednesday's Backchat, the live-in rule. Domestic helpers are required to sleep and live where they work - a policy that some say leads to abuse and greater risk of forced labour or servitude. The Government says any change to the 14 year old rule will have an impact on Hong Kong’s local workforce, transport and housing, while employers will have to pay more. While the legality of the measure is being considered, what do you think of its advisability? Call us on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, reforming the Medical Council.
