Killer Cuchifritos? Borikuas Blood Pressure is Deadly


“Because the Devil taught him how to eat the wrong foods.”- 10th degree, 1-36, English C. Lesson No. 1

While diet and nutrition does seem to be revolutionary, it is. Especially when you consider the role diet and nutrition play as an element of colonization and culturally hegemony. Many of the dietary habits we have picked up are alien to us and are not conducive with “life”.

“The "Dietary Triad" was and still is the most important part of our diet as many foods which were eaten by our ancestors are still eaten today (tortillas, pozole, atole, mole, gum which was used to clean the teeth, tamales etc.. etc..) The reason why a lot of Mexicans are overweight and unhealthy today is because we now also eat the animal meat brought by the Spaniards. What’s the problem with this? Well, we get the adequate amount of protein our body needs when we eat beans. If you add beef or chicken, you will be putting too much protein into your body and you will therefore gain weight. Never underestimate the value of your diet! You should always try to stick to our native foods as they are the most effecient in the world. “- from http://www.mexicauprising.net/

It is because many of these foods that we experience many of the health ailments that afflict our people, making us dependant on the corporate devils for manufactured chemicals (prescription medication). It has been so ingrained in our “culture” that we actually think that it is a part of our culture. Just like so many so-called African Americans who refuse to relinquish the pork chops and chitlins brought upon them via chattel slavery. They feel that by letting go of these things they are letting go of “who they are.” We are taught that we came UP from slavery, and not that we plummeted down into despair. This is outrageous perspective and horribly limited and detrimental to the human psyche because it makes the ‘right now’ appear as the greatest moment in our history.

“I hate it when they tell us how far we came to be/ As if our people’s history started with slavery..”- Immortal Technique, “Leaving the Past” from the album Revolutionary Vol. 2

This, of course, keeps us from reaching our vision. Because we have not been honest enough to include and cover ever area of development as we march towards the future. We want land, yes. But what will we do? Govern it and our people like Chad Smith of the Cherokee Nation? With “tribal names and whiteman brains”….We need to leave the PORK alone. Especially for so-called Latin Americans who “claim” to follow the Bible. It says not to eat swine. Stop twisting it around. I read Geronimo’s autobiography and came across a section that mentioned him and his refusal to eat pork, to which some whiteman attempted to encourage in him to. Secondly, we need to approach fried foods, tostones, cuchifritos, fry-bread etc. We need to start thinking about how to eat to live, to sustain, and not living to eat. I understand and appreciate the culturally relevance of certain foods, however we can not allow them to prohibit us from living the most qualitative way of life possible. We can not allow them when in many cases we are dying by our “own hands” more than in the hands of the system, because we are continuing the atrocity and miseducation from the system, whether we know it or not. Please research the “Willie Lynch Syndrome” if you haven’t. While it may not be 100% historically accurate, it serves as a good example for the internalization of negativity and destruction by the oppressor and how it’s perpetuate throughout future generations.

Puerto Ricans' blood pressure deaths higher

“ATLANTA -- Puerto Ricans have a higher death rate linked to high blood pressure than blacks, whites or other Hispanic-Americans do, federal health researchers said Thursday in one of the first analyses of specific U.S. Hispanic populations. Health officials don't know why and said more study is needed to find the cause. One expert said it could be related to health care, diet or genetics.

Puerto Rican-Americans had 154 high blood pressure-related deaths per 100,000 people in 2002, according to the researchers' review of death certificate data.

For Mexican-Americans, the rate was 134.5 and for Cuban-Americans, 82.5 that year. Among non-Hispanics, the black rate was 138, and the white rate was 136.

It's not clear why the Puerto Rican death rate was so high, said Dr. Carma Ayala, the report's lead author and an epidemiologist with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "We really need to do more studies to find that out," she said.

Of all racial groups, blacks have the highest rate of high blood pressure, and Hispanics and non-Hispanic whites have the condition at about the same rate.

The report was published in the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

Previous studies have focused on differences between blacks, whites and Hispanics, but this may be the first to look at the differences between Hispanic sub-populations, said Dr. Steven V. Manoukian, a cardiologist and official with the American Heart Association.

The data is important because it may lead to new clinical studies and public health education efforts, he said.

High blood pressure - also known as hypertension - is considered a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke, and an important predictor of premature death and disability. The condition can result from obesity and physical inactivity.”
