report: <1% of canadians meeting diet guidelines

Most Waterloo Region residents don't meet food guidelines: report (2014) ... -1.2735121
"Researchers found that only 3 out of every 1000 people in the region met the healthy eating guidelines set out by Health Canada.
"It's a fairly shocking number, especially because 75 per cent of Canadians think they eat a good or excellent-quality diet," [JL LOLOLOL ya right ppl] "But actually the Canadian average is about 0.5 per cent, so five out of every thousand, so we're pretty close to the national average"
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
