Why Dietitian Service Should be Available to Canadians for Free
My colleagues and I are seeking your support in making access to registered dietitians available for free to all Canadians! Did you know that 80% of chronic diseases are associated with lifestyle behaviours? Did you know they are preventable by working with a dietitian who is a health expert in the fields of food and nutrition? Dietitians are best suited to use food and nutrition as medicine to help Canadians stay healthy, manage existing health conditions ( Examples are: high blood pressure, certain types of cancers, certain types of heart diseases, depression, eating disorders and certain other forms of mental health issues etc. etc.).
