Given 80% of Canadians have modifiable risk factors (Health Canada); why is there no conversations about “Universal cradle-to-grave education program” or “universal non-starchy vegetable program”? Do Canadians know enough about health maintenance? Do Canadians eat enough non-starchy vegetables? How often is a citizen reminded of importance of wellness perspectives vs disease promoting behaviors?
If welfare money are often spent on a illness producing diet; then isn’t public’s money being used to promote illness?
If some drugs are already being used frequently to block symptoms and hence enable lifestyle illness; then why direct more public funds in the same manner?
Shouldn’t a “Universal cradle-to-grave education program” and a “universal non-starchy vegetable program” take precedence?
