  • There is a lady using the name of “MyCatisFat” writing to Havana Times, that Cubans are guaranteed 2,000 calories per day! Anybody know the basis for that view?

  • All this as a consequence of the generosity of the Castro family regime. This has been achieved as a result of fifty five years of Socialismo ensuring that the people of Cuba are protected from obesity.
