A Date With Death

Unfortunately many don`t know the various numbers of their health status. Many continue to eat themselves to death. Restaurants and food vendors have simply no understanding Sodium Chloride is corrosive and not needed in food. Celery is high in Sodium and is a healthier replacement for its corrosive family Pot Salt which comes in many branded flavours.

Electrolytes the body needs are Magnesium,Potassium,Calcium and Sodium and not Sodium Chloride. in addition the medical profession has also decided to even charge a higher fee for first visits and cannot ever be accused of extravagance in their charging.

Just over 3500 persons die yearly in Barbados and as an aging obese, stressed population we can expect more sudden deaths reporting due to social media and more mainstream media reporting. Latest statistics released by CDRC speaks to a population where 35 persons with a NCD to every 1 person with HIV.

As a country we are great at talking with the worship of money taking precedent over wellbeing of country and our fellow man. Restaurants and cook shops have all been irresponsible in the preparation of their gastronomic slow march to death foods. Each individual must take responsibility for what they consume under the pretext of good food. I am all for health care cost being  passed on to those who contribute to their own ill health, some may call it discrimination but smokers and alcoholics pay more to have access to life insurance.It should not take a Fast Food Tax imposition by Government to bring restaurants and cook shop to a Christian understanding by hitting them in their pockets.

The question begs, are you a walking dead who is just a heart beat away from a heart attack or stroke?

    That is because Magnesium is needed as a cofactor to enzymes involved in generation of energy from food. A good example is in the phosphorylation of glucose to glucose 6 p in the first reaction of glycolysis

    There is nothing embarrassing or earth shattering about having a water supply that can cause illnesses … it is a fact which many countries deal with daily, even the US

    Sweeping it under the rug is the worst possible thing to do.

    Deal with it as one of many problems which needs to be solved … and solve it.

    Address it from as many different angles as is necessary.

    We accept as a God given right the availability of fresh potable water without even realizing the hoops people need to jump through to make it so.

    Even treated water can kill, just because of what is not there!!!!

    The example of the lack Magnesium makes one think of Bottled Water and the desal plant as sources of treated water Bajans routinely ingest on a daily basis which can create problems.

    The actual cause of death of an individual along with other data like where they lived and worked can help in reaching hypotheses as to the sources of the problems which then need to be tested.

    All sorts of disciplines and ways of thinking are needed to get to an understanding of the source of the problem.

    I don’t have a clue what that means!!!!

    But it doesn’t mean that I cant offer data from the 1978 Stanley Report which states “In all of the ground water sources of Barbados, magnesium is present in very limited quantities (2 to 3.5 mg/l). No variation was observed with season or geographical location.”

    What are those levels in bottled water or in water coming from the desal plant which have been treated?
