RAPID change in eating habits and lifestyle is believed to be a contributing factor to the rise of non-communicable diseases experienced at Northwest Choiseul.
Mr Nerio Ulemiki, the media coordinator for Christ the King Parish at Voruvoru, said locals are urging citizens to make a change with commitment to decrease consuming refined foods from shops.
“Change from local foods and local cooking styles to refined foods and modern cooking styles contribute to people becoming ignorant from the fact that local foods are still healthy for our bodies,” said Ulemiki.
According to Mr Ulemiki, decreasing of consuming refined foods from shops should include heavy consumption of smoking and alcohol as well that contributes to a lot of violence incidents.
