Excerpt
Most countries and areas of the Western Pacific Region are experiencing a health transition due to fast changes in lifestyles and population ageing. As one of the results of the transition, noncommunicable diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes are increasing and have become major public health issues in most countries and areas of the Region. It is notable that diet changes such as nutrient content, methods of food production and processing are predominant in all societies. Unhealthy diet, high saturated fat, high salt intake, high calorie density, and low fibre are very prevalent. These are some of the most important risk factors of noncommunicable diseases and have had a strong negative impact on people’s health and on patterns of disease transition.
