Media Alert - ACTI-MENU

    MONTREAL, April 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Due to their growing prevalence,
cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and obesity are often featured in
the news. The Quit to Win! Challenge and the 5/30 Health Challenge provide
Quebecers with winning health strategies they can use to effectively combat
these diseases.

           ACTI-MENU invites the media to attend the Announcement
                             of the 2007 Results
           of the Quit to Win! Challenge and 5/30 Health Challenge.

                   Thursday, April 26th, 2007, at 2:30 pm
         Hall of the Institut de tourisme et d'hôtellerie du Québec
                       3535 St-Denis Street, Montreal

    The event will be hosted by:

    - Francis Reddy, 5/30 Health Challenge Spokesperson;

    - Geneviève Guérard, Quit to Win! Challenge Spokesperson.

    For six weeks, from March 1st to April 11th, and for an 8th year in a row,
the Quit to Win! Challenge helped many Quebec smokers to butt out. Quebecers
also actively participated in the 3rd edition of the 5/30 Health Challenge,
with the intention of reaching or maintaining two key health objectives:
eating at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables and doing at least 30
minutes of physical activity for a minimum of five days a week.

    The important contributions of these two campaigns and their impact on
Quebecers' health will be highlighted by the following presenters:

    - Dr. Alain Poirier, Assistant Deputy Minister and National Director for
      Public Health with the Ministry of Health and Social Services;

    - Marie-France Bérard, Regional Executive Director, Health Canada;

    - Suzanne Dubois, Executive Director, Canadian Cancer Society, Quebec

    - Dr. Martin Juneau, ACTI-MENU's Co-President, Cardiologist and Director
      of Prevention at the Montreal Heart Institute;

    - Marie-Claude Pelletier, General Manager, ACTI-MENU.
