HEALTHY LIFESTYLE BY DESIGN
Cities are great hubs of innovation and opportunity attracting people. However, an urban lifestyle is leading to a variety of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), now being Malaysians’ main killer. Over 65% of adults are not active enough, half have high cholesterol and over a third experience diabetes or high blood pressure. To prevent or manage this group of diseases, people are told to lead a healthy lifestyle. But can they? The design of cities could be seen as immunisation against NCDs.

MEMOIR OF AN URBAN TREE
Prof. LAr. Dr. Mustafa Kamal Mohd Shariff
Compared to trees growing in their natural environment, urban trees are subject to more stress. Trees growing in cities are generally more exposed to the extremes of temperature, moisture and pollutants. The urban soils they grow in are also likely to be less rich in nutrients. Construction activities and vehicles may occasionally damage the roots, trunks and branches of trees, and development works may reduce the available growing space of existing trees. Trees may not be able to talk, but their appearance and “body language” can inform us about their health.
