Blue Cross Teams up With Eight Groups to Address Obesity, Lower Minnesotans' Health Risks by Promoting Healthy Eating
Date:11/19/2008

oday 80 percent of Minnesotans put their health at risk because they aren't eating a healthy diet," said Manley. "That's a big problem that requires enlisting help from many groups around the state to remove barriers and change systems, so that eating healthfully can be the easy choice. We look forward to working with these interests, and together, I'm confident we can make real progress."

Healthy Eating Minnesota is part of Blue Cross' Prevention Minnesota initiative. Funded by Blue Cross' settlement proceeds from its historic lawsuit against the tobacco industry, Prevention Minnesota works to tackle preventable heart disease and cancers by addressing their root causes -- physical inactivity, unhealthy eating and tobacco use.
