Tonga health officials seek ban on poor quality food


Health authorities in Tonga are calling for new laws which will allow the country to ban imports of poor quality food. The Tongan Health Department says more than 90 per cent of the population is classed as overweight and more than 60 per cent is obese. A high level health summit will be held in Tonga next week to discuss the causes of what is regarded as an obesity epidemic.
