    itself in the spotlight from health officials across the world who are desperate to find out whatit was the Finns got so right.

    !*he biggest innovation was massive community based intervention. 2e tried to changeentire communities, !says 'us(a. "nstead of a mass campaign telling people what not to do,officials blit3ed the population with positive incentives. 4illages held !+uit andwin!competitions for smo(ers, where those who didn t spar( up for a month won pri3es.-ntire towns were set against each other in cholesterol cutting showdowns. !2e would go in,measure everyone s cholesterol, then go bac( two months later, !says 'us(a. *he towns thatcut cholesterol the most would win a collective pri3e. !2e didn t tell people how to cutcholesterol, they (new that. "t wasn t education they needed, it was motivation. *hey neededto do it for themselves. !

    5ocal competitions were combined with sweeping nationwide changes in legislation. Allforms of tobacco advertising were banned outright. Farmers were all but forced to producelow fat mil(.

    "n time, the Finnish authorities succeeded in forcing down salt inta(e, a crucial move forcutting blood pressure, and blood cholesterol has fallen along with fat inta(e and smo(ing.

    Observers of the Finnish success story are now wor(ing on how they can bring such drasticimprovements to their own countries. 'rivately, some claim that Finland had it easier thanmany because its citi3ens are happy to live in a nanny state. 4uori believes nanny state is toostrong a term, but concedes that Finland had advantages other countries might not. !*heremay be a greater proportion of people in 6ritain who believe it is not for the state to say whatwe can drin( and eat, or whether we can smo(e. "n Finland, regardless of your political

    views, we are +uite obedient, we are trustful of the state and the media.

    6ut people are also well educated, they hear the messages we put out and they (now they aresensible, !says 4uori.

    Ludicrous to bribe people to be health$7 6ho else%

    + disagree with the view, + think $ou can pa$ people to be health$, i we take onee*a"ple: cigarettes s"oking, the govern"ent taking a lot o ta*ation ro"s"okers, so on the one hand the$ take "one$ in, what contra proportion o that"one$ be given back to s"okers as a wa$ o stopping s"oking, we wantulti"atel$ the lowest cost and it "a$ will be cheaper to pa$ so"eone to stops"oking than allow the" to get a serious disease potentiall$ cancer where thecosts o treating that cancer is substantiall$ "ore than giving a ew hundred uidto sa$ i $ou stop s"oking will give $ou three hundred pound would be a lot "oreless than spending thousands upon thousands, so + think $ou can pa$ people tobe health$.
