In 2018, Statistics Canada reported that nearly one in three Canadians were obese.
Similar figures have been reported in Australia, but more concerning is the US, where over forty percent of the population is obese.
Obesity is not the only diet-related illness to be concerned about — diabetes is just as prevalent.
When it comes to such diseases, diet and physical activity help reduce the chance of being diagnosed. In fact, when it comes to Type 2 diabetes, diet and physical activity can prevent 50 per cent of it.
