Minister Kennedy is on the right track here. Newfoundlanders have some of the highest rates of heart disease and stroke in the country. We also have very high rates of type 2 diabetes. These are preventable conditions. Exercise, less fats and salt in diets can significantly reduce the incidence of these diseases----and save millions of taxpayer dollars. Our health care system is unsustainable into the future unless we take some responsibility for our own health.
