New Report--Tipping the Scales of Progress: Heart Disease and Stroke in Canada 2006

On June 5, the Heart and Stroke Foundation released new projections on
tobacco use and obesity in Canada, along with policy recommendations to
reduce heart disease and stroke aimed at governments. The report is
called Tipping the Scales of Progress: Heart Disease and Stroke in
Canada 2006.

The report makes specific Heart and Stroke policy recommendations in
three key areas: tobacco control, obesity and disease prevention, and
strengthening the health evidence base.  While the Foundation has
previously released statistical reports, this is the first edition that
combines data and projections with policy recommendations for
governments.

The full report is available at http://www.heartandstroke.ca.
