Page 1 of 4Critical analysis of epidemiological issue
Diet plays an important role in the etiology (and therefore prevention) of non-communicable diseases
such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, osteoporosis and others. In this
report, students will select a diet-related condition, describe its determinants, aetiology and
epidemiology including rates and at-risk groups (around 1000 words). Further, students will identify
and critically analyse two programs intended to address the issue (1500…
