Ethiopian Food Heritage is Unique Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

The study showed that new immigrants form Ethiopia, in 1984-1985 and 1991, had diabetes prevalence rates as low as 0.4% and 0% respectively. The rate was found to be 8.9% among Ethiopians who had been residing in Israel for 2.5 - 4 years. It was only after being exposed to a Western diet and lifestyle that the diabetes rate in this population increased. We can infer from the Israeli study that when the traditional Ethiopian diet is replaced by Western foods, the rate of diabetes among the immigrant population will increase.

Teff has great mysteries to tell the world, and in fact, should other research works be conducted, I believe that it would be found to help prevent other bodilyy complications and problems. For those of us who are born to be with it, it is a special bestowal that we are privileged, and we invite others to join and partake the blessings we are already enjoying.

May all of us walk in beauty, harmony and serenity!

Writing is a powerful instrument to promote one's ideology, so as to transform and galvanize the whole of humanity to have a better perspective about this world.

Words are just combinations of letters, but the power they exert in every human frame is still a mystery to all.

Writing uses these mysterious forces of words as a tool to introduce, induce and create vibrations in society, which do have an influence on every aspect of our life as human beings.

May the power of WORDS prevail over all!!
