The types of foods we eat have become
one of the most important issues
of our time. In South Africa, diseases
related to diet such as heart disease,
high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity
and tooth decay are increasing.
However, we have no real solutions to
these mounting health problems. They
place a high and unsustainable financial
burden on an already overloaded
health care system.
The issues related to changes in diet are
complex and need a detailed analysis of
the problem and possible solutions.
