Healthy eating, physical exercise, and routine medical examinations have all been promoted on stamps. The 1994 stamp from Israel promoting healthy eating was part of a set of three stamps advertising “health and well-being”, the other two stamps covering regular exercise and non-smoking. Physical fitness was the theme of the 1983 stamp from the USA showing joggers superimposed on an ECG tracing. Community health and routine medical checks were the subject for the 41 cent Australian stamp from 1990 where heart and breast diseases were emphasised in the design of the stamp.
