dairy product, it can be explained as follows:

Osteoporosis is a lifestyle disease and prevention is the best cure. No state funding is provided for the vital preventative work which NOFSA is performing. The foundation therefore depends on the generosity of support from the private and corporate sectors to make a noise and to educate.
Our vision is to “Improve the quality of life for those suffering with osteoporosis, by making the diagnostic tools available. To allow everyone suffering with osteoporosis access to medications that will prevent their first fractures. To support the research about the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, thereby preventing or lessening the serious socio-economic impact of this disease in South Africa”

Due to South Africa’s rising obesity epidemic the government launched NNW, an initiative run by the Department of Health during October each year. It focuses on raising awareness of the importance of portion control.
Statistics show that increasing numbers of South Africans are overweight or obese, with the problem at its worst among adult women and pre-school children. ‘Eat less – choose your portion with caution!’ was the central message for NNW during 2013.
National Nutrition Week combines practical tools, such as the South African Guidelines for Healthy Eating and the Food Guide, and is intended to send a strong public message and give people essential information in accessible and user-friendly formats to help them make long-lasting diet and lifestyle changes.
