abstract

  • Non-communicable diseases are the major cause of preventable death in industrialized countries and a growing concern elsewhere (Singapore Declaration, 1998). Modifiable risk factors for these diseases are prevalent [e.g., in Canada, 75% of adults have at least one modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD)] (Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, 1997).
