Get ready to debunk some common food myths and learn about a healthy diet based around Alberta agriculture with the Alberta Diabetes Foundation. Join them for #ABFoodFight – Debunking Food myths on the main stage at the 2017 Fall Edmonton Woman’s Show.
One million people in Alberta (that’s 1 in every 4!) have diabetes or prediabetes – meaning they are at a much higher risk of reduced lifespan and quality of life. This number will continue to rise and is projected to reach 1.3 million by 2026. The Alberta Diabetes Foundation is taking action to share information that will arm Albertans with the tools they need to create a healthy lifestyle. #ABFoodFight is all about making more people aware of the growing problem of diabetes in our province, and how they can use Alberta foods as a tool for preventing or managing this disease.
