Worrying indeed

Re: Dialysis number 

Let’s see what the figures are like after the opening of the new Mac Donald’s outlets... All these diseases mentioned, are preventable by dissemination of knowledge, healthy eating, exercise, clean water, etc. Practice prevention and you’ll have the cure.

Is the government doing enough dissemination of right knowledge, right action? Are the churches? Is healthy living a cultural priority? Obviously food is a fundamental necessity, but it also falls into a cultural feature of Samoan life.

The whole culture of food, for example, from preparation, ie. ingredients, food types etc, through to consumption, can be better understood inorder to make positive changes to what has a direct impact on health.
