Alexander Walker in 1981
What are the chances of prevention, amelioration or regression of Western diseases?
These pages have been copied as of public interest both as to perceptions of the future of health in South Africa in 1981, and for the consideration of public dietary habits views and willingness to adopt better diets if given knowledge and choice.
The world has self-evidently moved on since 1981 including in terms of food provision, marketing, less time for food preparation and dietary advice etc., but these few paragraphs remain relevant and thought provoking.
