On the occasion of World Health Day on Tuesday (April 7), the
theme this year being Food Safety, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has
come out with a set of guidelines, with an accent on the State. The IMA
guidelines will be released by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, on Tuesday. The
IMA pointed out that given the alarming increase in the incidence of
lifestyle-related diseases in the State, it was high time that a radical change
was brought about in the food practices of Malayalis and the levels of fat and
carbohydrates in the diet were brought down to moderate levels.
