Consumer Health Products Canada publishes new study on the benefit of self-care to the Canadian Health System

According to the study published this month in the on-line SelfCare Journal, one quarter of Canadian adults experience colds/flu each month, which costs the Canadian healthcare system $625 million annually in doctors’ visits alone. If the 16% of people who saw a doctor for their mild cold/flu symptoms practices self-care instead it would save $98 million annually or allow almost half a million Canadians to have access to a family doctor.
