Non-communicable diseases rising in Northwest Choiseul


INCREASE of non-communicable diseases currently reported at Northwest Choiseul is believed to be caused by the rapid change of eating habits and lifestyle.

Mr Nerio Ulemiki the media coordinator for Christ the King Parish at Voruvoru reporting said locals are now urging its citizens to make a strong u-turn with commitment to decrease consuming refined foods from shops.

“This includes heavy consumption of smoking and alcohol as well,” said Mr Ulemiki.

“Change from local foods and local cooking styles to refined foods and modern cooking styles spark it all in contributing to people becoming lazy and ignoring the old system of relying on healthy local foods because they turn to depend on foods from shops instead.

“A strong u-turn with commitment must be done to make the old system work back again.”
