Healthier lifestyles by Quebecers would ease the economic burden of chronic diseases

Well, that seems like an odd title? Not that it isn't true, more that you could substitute any group of people for "Quebecers."

Between now and 2030, Quebec could achieve cumulative savings of $7.7 billion —$1.8 billion in direct costs and $5.9 billion in indirect costs—if more Quebecers adopted a healthier lifestyle and reduced the prevalence of major risk factors for six chronic diseases. In fact, the annual savings could reach $800 million by 2030.
