Cajanus Vol 42 No 3 2009 - Mental Health and Nutrition

In issuing the Nassau Declaration in 2001, the Caribbean Heads Government pronounced that "the health of a region is the wealth of the region". This Declaration stood on three pillars: non- communicable diseases (NCDs), HIV/AIDS and Mental Health. Previous issues of Cajanus have elaborated on the critical role of nutrition in NCDs and AIDS. This issue draws attention to the little known, but essential, role of nutrition in mental health.

Cajanus Vol 42 No 2 2009 - Food Safety 2

Food poisoning at a local food festival or tourism event, convulsions resulting from unscrupulous peddling of harmful food supplements and the unfettered consumption of “empty calories” from vending machines are images that we cannot allow to be a regular part of the Caribbean consciousness. This issue of CAJANUS gives focus to these aspects of food safety where regulation may need to be introduced or enforced.
