Tutuila being poisoned

Dear Editor

Re: Weight survey for Pago Pago fliers prompts airline action

On a trip to Amerika Samoa this year, my heart went out to the people. I love our cousins in Tutuila, however they are being poisoned with the American diet that they are subjected to. “Sodas” or soft drinks along with fast food outlets like Macdonalds and other similar styled outlets along with many consumables which are highly processed and full of sugar, artificial additives, processed meats, etc. are taking its toll.

The diet of our ancestors should be the way forward, natural, organic and rich in vitamins and minerals. Our people are being poisoned by these corporations as we allow them by making choices about what to buy and what to eat.
