Our healthcare system is at a turning point. The skyrocketing prevalence and economic burden of chronic disease has become a crisis. And while much of the burden of chronic disease is avoidable, our healthcare system remains focused on treating illness rather than preventing its onset.
We know that nutrition is one of the most important means for preserving population health and slowing disease progression. The potential for reduced healthcare costs and enhanced economic productivity is significant. Now, more than ever Canada needs to advance nutrition research, education and its applications.
